    Crystal Light Containers

    I also save these. One year I had my first graders make pencil cans for Father's Day. I took one of those small identification pictures you might get from the school photographer after picture day, or another small photo of the child. Just make sure it is a glossy finish or the later step will mar the finish. I taped it onto the canister with strips of masking tape. Then I gave them strips of masking tape to rip into little pieces (less that 1") and stick all over the container until the entire outside was covered, except where the picture was. This took more than one session, by the way. We then used brown paste shoe polish to rub over the entire surface, again not over the picture. When finished it looks like leatherette. Finally, they wrote Dad, or whatever, using a Sharpie or paint pen. They did turn out pretty nice.
