A Photo holder for your desk or home,,,

Create a cute way to hold your photos and so easy to create.
I used the fun line from Basic Grey Marjolaine
Supplies needed
2 pieces pattern paper, brads, yarn/string, paper piercer, ribbon, glue, tape runner, foral stem wire, empty paint can, corner rounder, round styrofoam around 2 1/2 inches wide and 5 inches in height and foam brush or sponge,

My DH picked up quart size empty cans for a couple bucks at Home depot.
Cut your paper to fit on your paint can, Top 2 3/4 bottom, 2 inches.
in addition you will need one small piece that covers the entire can 5 and 3/"4 I used the same as the bottom, the 12 inch pieces do not fit completely around it.
Adhere with your favorite adhesive I used glue.
Corner round the top of your paper, then put your brads on. Now you can adhere the pieces around, the can start on one side of the paper you place on the can first.
Use a round needle nose pliars to round the top of the wire and flatten it, for the photo holders I made 3 holders. wrap the wire around a small marker or pencil, if you like that look

small strips of paper to fold and crimp to put in the top

Place your ribbon around the center, covering the seam. I used a brass ribbon holder in the center of mine. lace up your brads
Put your styrofoam in the center crimped paper to cover the center, and put in the metal photo holders.
Happy creating
