I saw these refurbished wallpaper cans by Marichelle on Heart Handmade last week and couldn't wait to give it a go.

To make mine, I used Laura Ashley wallpaper samples and a tub of Waitrose Cooks' Ingredients Dark Chocolate Chunks which was just 2 1/2" in diameter making it perfect for housing either the cotton pads I use to take my makeup off or as a desk tidy...I'm still undecided!
If you use the same measurements as I did to make your jotter it will be small enough for you to use a regular stapler along the spine as I have done, if you're really cleaver tho you could hand stitch the spine ;)
Finally, to complete the set, I found a tiny 200g mayo jar that was the perfect size to house either the miniature set of colouring pencils I have from Paperchase or my q-tips. To create the jar wrap around you will need to measure the height of the straight side of the glass where it doesn't curve so you get a nice smooth finish. You then use a measuring tape to get the circumference of the jar so you know how long to cut your strip of wallpaper.
