Frenchy Pringles Canister Makeover

Sour cream and onion Pringles have never looked so good!  Yes, after enjoying the chips, I saved the canister so I could copycat one of my favorite Pinterest pins.
This was my inspiration.  Lovely, right?  This blogger used an oatmeal canister.  And here's my version using the Pringles canister.
I wrapped the canister in vintage sheet music to start.  Then I printed off this great French image (courtesy The Graphics Fairy) onto plain white paper.  Glued that on over the sheet music.
Once that was dry, I added another French image to the plastic top - which you totally can't see but it is there.  Then I added some glitter around the edges and some tea-stained seam binding.  I couldn't resist adding a little bling too on the front.
I finished up by stringing some bells and a metal star (from Ikea) on more tea-stained seam binding.  I used my hot glue gun to add that to the top.  
I love how the star hangs down, and how the grey/silver and pink hues play off each other.  I'm so happy too with how it turned out. And lucky me, Pathmark is having a sale on Pringles so I'm off to stock up so I can make more!

Very pretty, so charming, and so surprising that you are doing such pastel wonderfulness right in line with that candy
jar of tiny skeleton heads, that I also love!!

I love it! Who would have thought that a plain ol' Pringles can could look so glamorous? Love the graphics, seam binding, and your cute star, too.

Hello Jeanine
You've taken the humble Pringle tin to a whole new level - it's beautiful.
Sadly there is not a 'Pathmark' store where I live but I'll pick some up at the supermarket and let you know when I've made them!
Thank you for inspiring me today - I'm visiting from Grey Dey Thursdey.

hugs
Shane
