I recently saw a paper covered quart paint can used to hold small gifts. It looks like it would lend itself really nicely to my scrapping supplies. However I was wondering about the paint can. Is there somewhere you can purchase new unused cans? Has anyone done this?

Yep, you can get unused paint cans at any home improvement store, like Lowes, Home Depot, etc. as well as paint stores. I think the gallon ones were around $1.50 a few years ago, so definitely not expensive either.

Great information. Thank you so much. I'm thinking this would be a great tongue-in-cheek gift for the do-it-yourselfer.

The craft industry has clear ones for decorating purposes, but they are more expensive than the "real" ones at hardware stores.
You can get them in many sizes at hardware stores.

Thanks for the info. The other day when I was getting my hair cut someone was making an appointment and it struck me how close Christmas is. Why do I always get in a crafty mood so late in the game?

Yeah they are fun to put gifts in and make a "label" for them with digiscrap stuff, also attach a can opener to the top a fun gift to uncover LOL. Check lowes, home depot etc, they are fairly inexpensive too!

And just FYI, I have templates you can use to decorate the outside of the can. You can find them here: ScrapSimple Craft Templates: Altered Paint Cans .

HTH! :)

I used the templates to decorate cans for my kids. DH had to search all over for them. None of the major chains carried them in our area. So, I'd suggest calling first.
