My first project I dressed up a nestle quick container that stores my pens. This is a very fast and easy no sew project. I love containers, and I have containers to hold just about everything. Just recently I have started dressing up my containers so that they have a little more style.
I am also a big fan of pens and markers and have just about every color of sharpie and gel pen. Anyway so what I did for my pen container was take some plain white fabric, some brown ribbon, and some teal glitter. Ohh and some glue!
First I layed a line of glue down and placed the fabric right over the line.
Each time I rounded a side on the short sides I would lay a line of glue down to secure the fabric to the container
Then I wrapped the fabric around the container enough times so that you don't see any writing. If you are using a clear container you won't need as much fabric.
After I layed my fabric down then I glued down the brown ribbon.
Next I glued the rim of the container then layed some glitter over it to just give it a little bling..
Last I labeled the container. I will eventually add some extra details as I come across them.
What do you do with your empty containers?
