Cover Containers with Scrapbook Paper

Glass jars, containers, candles, and cans can easily be decorated for any season or event with just a few pretty sheets of scrapbook paper and some adhesive. Try placing the paper inside the jars for a more polished look, or secure the paper on the outside of the container with ribbon and string for a more casual look. Seasonal scrapbook paper transforms the look of glass votives to fit the occasion.

    These are gorgeous ideas! Love vase wrapping ones. Sometimes when I’m browsing DIY and crafts I mistake fabrics for wall paper and scrap paper and vice versa. Both materials are so easy to do so much with. They add tremendous color and patterns.
