Directions

  1. Step 1: Cut and glue

    Cut a strip the height of the can from the paper that will represent Max or Ruby’s "t-shirt." Glue the strip to the can or container.

  2. Step 2: "Dress up" the containers

    Cut a strip the height of the can from the paper that will represent Max's overalls or Ruby's dress. Then cut a notch and two "armholes" at the center of the strip. Glue on top of "shirt."

  3. Step 3: Draw the finishing touches

    With the pencil or marker, draw a pocket and buttons.

Tip: For simpler gluing, dip a small paintbrush in glue and apply it to the entire container. Then affix the paper.
