THINGS YOU NEED
- An empty can (with smooth surface)
- A piece of color paper
- A piece of white paper
- A piece of cardboard
- Colored markers
- Two-faced tape
- Correction Fluid
- Measuring tape
Use the measuring tape to measure the height and the circumference of the can. Make sure that the can completely clean and dry because once you’re turned it into a pen holder, you can’t clean it with water anymore. Then cut two rectangles (of the same size), one from the white sheet of paper and another from a color paper that you like, with the length = the circumference of the can, and the width = the height of the can.
Stick pieces of tw0-faced tape onto the can. I recommend sticking a long vertical piece down the can like in the picture. Then, wrap the white rectangle around the can. Start at the long vertical piece. Do it carefully and slowly enough to avoid any wrinkles. Then, stick pieces of two-faced tape on it with a long vertical piece down the can again. This time wrap the can with the colored rectangle. You have to wrap the white rectangle first as the ‘foundation’. If you only wrap it with the colored rectangle, the letters and color on the can surface will still be seen.
Draw different INFINITE logos on the cardboard. Make them small enough to fit on the can. I recommend using scale drawing to get as perfect shapes as possible. When you’re done, cut them out (around the outer edge) with scissors carefully. Then, color them with colored markers and use correction fluid for white spaces. Use the colored markers on the cardboard not on correction fluid because the color will be paler.
Now stick those logos onto the can that was wrapped with colored paper by using tw0-faced tape. Then write each members’ names (in Korean or English), album names, couple names, etc with different colors on the available spaces on the can. Let your creation flow! And when you’re done, you’ll get a nice-INFINITE-hand-made pen holder!
