Waking in the middle of the night does have benefits. I got up and covered some pots and jars with patterned paper. I think they look quite pretty.
I started off with an old coffee tin I had washed and put by for some sort of craft project.
The tin measured 27cm x 15cm tall. I found a set of patterned papers (Stampin' Up, Beautiful Boutique range) that I thought would work well and cut them to different widths adding an additional cm to the measurement for overlapping.
Using double sided sticky tape, I stuck the top row to the tin and worked my way down woth the two other patterned papers to the bottom. I added ribbon as a trim and put the plastic lid of the tin on the base (so that it doesn't scratch the surfaces). I then did the same with a couple of jars.
