For Bean’s birthday, I decided to make some Creature Power Discs for the Power Suit that I’ve been planning but still haven’t gotten around to making.
Oof, I’m feeling lazy…
For this project, I used:
- Recycled Frozen Juice Can Lids
- 4×6 Glossy Photo Paper
- Epson WorkForce 2630 Printer, $90
- Friskars Scissors, $9
- Xyron Sticker Maker, $16
- Creature Power Discs PDF
This ended up being a pretty easy project because PBS offered the free printable for this project!
I just had to change the printer paper setting to 4×6 photo paper. I did this on a hunch for two reasons — I had a feeling that changing the paper size would yield perfectly sized discs and I wanted the discs to come out glossy and more finished looking without having to break out my laminator. And I was right! The discs I printed on the first trial were perfect! I love when the crafting gods smile down on me.
After printing all the Creature Power Discs, I cut them out, which was the most time consuming part of the project. Once they were all cut out, I ran them through my sticker maker and carefully stuck them to the metal frozen juice can lid.
We’ve been making a lot of juice from concentrate, this last month, so we could collect the metal lids for this project.

This is the only printer I’ve ever been able to successfully connect to both of my computers and my iPhone for wireless printing but I definitely wouldn’t pay Amazon’s price for it… Look around for a deal!
