A few weeks ago, Bean had his Wild Kratts birthday party and our friends and family came out to celebrate his third birthday. He loved the whole thing but I had some unfinished projects that I just couldn’t get done before party deadline.
One of project was the holder that I wanted to accompany the Creature Power Discs I made for Bean.
For this project, I used:
- Recycled Pringles Chip Can
- Adhesive Vinyl in Black, Gray
- Friskars Scissors, $9
- Xyron Sticker Maker, $17
- Creature Power Discs PDF, for formatting information, click here.
When we went to the store over the weekend, we bought two small cans of Pringles and the moment we got home, I took out the chips and quickly washed out the cans. You have to wash them pretty quickly because they’re made out of cardboard so anything thing longer than a quick rinse will degrade can.
I used the adhesive vinyl I had left over from my Zach Bots project and first put down a layer of black vinyl that covered the whole can. Then I cut two thin strips of gray vinyl to put at the top and bottom of the can to help hide the seams.
I cut out some extra Creature Power Discs I had left over and ran the circles through my sticker maker. I decided to choose a random green power disc (for Chris Kratt) and a blue power disc (for Martin Kratt).
And that’s it!! The Pringles cans are a perfect match for wrangling the concentrated juice lids I used as the base for the Power Discs.
Once Bean wears these out, I’ll probably make some replacements with a more gadget-y feel.
