HOW-TO

1. Use acrylic paint on any type of paper to create free-form designs, such as a splatter painting, stripes, spots, color blocks, and random brushstrokes. Let paint dry completely. 

2. Make the to-go tins: With a craft knife and metal ruler, cut paper into 3 3/4-by-6-inch sheets. Attach paper to tube using double-sided tape. 

3. Download and print “XO” clip-art labels onto sticker labels; affix sticker to tube.
