You can find everything you need here at your local craft store. For the soup can, simply check your recycling bin. Look for a can that is clean, free from sharp edges, and in decent shape. For the paper and hearts, choose anything that has a Valentine’s Day theme or color scheme.


1. Begin by wrapping the scrapbook paper around the can and trimming it to fit. You can toss any extra paper or saving for crafting scraps. Apply some glue to secure it to the can. Press the paper to the can until dry and secure.
