    Quart Size Paint Can: Measurements: I was doing some quart cans for another swap and decided to actually write down the measurements for the paper for a quart-sized can in case it would help anybody: I used two sheets of cardstock 6 3/4" wide by 4 5/8" high. The seams overlap a little. I used ModgePodge/double side tape to adhere the paper. If you use modge podge you need another layer of the modge podge to seal it.
    For the lid, I used my Cricut to cut a perfect 3" circle. If I had the option (but I don't), 3 1/4" might be a little better but the perfect circle is wonderful!
    It looks like you can make 3 cans with two sheets of paper if you have an allover pattern.

    Pretty well. I didn't trim the paper close enough in some places and so the filing didn't work as well in some spots. But honestly, I didn't want perfect edges, I wanted it too look distressed, so I am really pleased with it. I inked the edges and they are cute. I made parenthesis {} with a monogram in between.

    Thanks for all the great tips. I am new to scrapbooking and am having trouble feeling confident enough to make final decisions. I have spent hundreds of dollars and only just started really doing the work.

    Thanks for your help. I'm ready!

    I'm wondering if maybe there could be a link of techniques to use w/ the cricut?...
    Maybe pages that have cricut cutouts on them? ... just a thought what do you think?
