Altered Paint can for Matthew

Matthew has wanted a paint can likes Sissy for a while. So while we were out for school on Monday I decided to make his. He got to chose what he wanted on it. Here's what he came up with:
A doggy and an airplane...


A monkey driving a truck with an apple in the back pulling the boat... Oh let's not forget the spider!

For the lid I used my eyelet setter to punch a hole in the top and then I threaded a ribbon through and tied with a double knot so that it wouldn't come out. I crimped the inside edges of the paint can so that it comes on and off easier when pulled on my the ribbon.
Now he has a special place to store all of his crayons and markers! I also covered the can with modge podge for added protection!

(All of the above die cuts were cut with my Cricut by Provocraft!)
