Giftable Garbage - Oatmeal Canister to Gift Can

I finished off a canister of oatmeal while making my everything cookies, and I was struck with a creative lightning bolt.  Here it is!

Cast of characters:
Empty oatmeal can or any other empty food canister, scrapbooking or craft paper, scissors or cutting board, tape, hot glue gun, ribbon.

I used the packaging tape because the wideness of the tape allowed me to place the tape on the back of the paper, wrap the paper around the can, then lay the overlapping paper on top of the sticky tape.  You'll have to be very strategic and careful to do this with a more narrow tape.
