Altered Pop Top Can

Altered Pop Top Can

Alter a pop top can container and fill it with goodies. It makes a great gift container for small gifts or candy.


  • Pop Top Can
  • Safety Can Opener
  • Coluzzle™
  • Patterned Paper
  • Scissors
  • Sticky Strip™
  • Candy or other filling
  • Crystal Effects or other STRONG glue


  1. Step 1

    Open the can AT THE BOTTOM with a safety can opener. Drain contents and wash container.
  2. Step 2

    Apply Sticky Strip™ at the seam of the can.
  3. Step 3

    Cut patterned paper tall enough to cover the area between the top and bottom of the tin, and long enough to wrap around the can, leaving a slight overlap.

    Adhere over the Sticky Strip™ and add more Sticky Strip™ to the end of the paper. Remove the red liner, then wrap the paper around the and adhere.
  4. Step 4

    Measure the top of the can with a Coluzzle™ template. Only measure the metal area that is going to pop out when the can is opened.
  5. Step 5

    Cut circle to fit.
  6. Step 6

    Slide paper under the tab to get an idea of how much will need to be cut off.
  7. Step 7

    Use your scissor to cut off a side of the circle. There is no set amount, but start with a little and keep trimming until it fits.
  8. Step 8

    Using Sticky Strip™, adhere paper circle to the lid of the can.
  9. Step 9

    Now, fill the can. Turn it upside down and add desired contents. If adding food items, put them in a baggie. This way, the glue used to close the container will not touch the food.
  10. Step 10

    Apply a thin strip of Crystal Effects™ (or other STONG glue) all the way around the outer rim of the cut out bottom.
  11. Step 11

    Press the bottom back on, wiping away excess glue with a tissue.

    Leave can upside down and weigh down a heavy object on top until the glue has dried for a few hours or overnight.

    When dry, embellish as desired!!
  12. Step 12

    Finish decorating your can.
