Used my Cricut Machine to cut the letters, circles and scallops The letter I choose is for the teachers last name. Measurement for the strip that goes around the can 4" wide and I glued two 12" long pieces together and trimmed the excess. For the top lid circle 5 1/2", Monogram circle 5", Scallop 5 1/2", Letters 4" and used shadow cut for the letter mat. I used both the Plantin School book and Storybook cartridge to cut everything out.
I fill the paint cans with school supplies that the teachers can use for next year. I found these cute monogram post its and note cards at Michaels and thought it would be fun to add in the can. Also I add some boxes of their favorite candy. List of supplies I usually add are highlighters, dry erase markers, red pens,black pens, paper clips,staples, push pins, binder clips and pocket size hand sanitizer.
Here are the pics of the paint cans I made for the teachers last year and the year before.
