  • Chip can
  • Decorative paper
  • Iridescent pony beads
  • Iridescent faceted beads
  • Hot glue
  • Clear plastic
  • Mirror paper
  • Awl (leader use only)


  1. Cut the decorative paper to fit around the outside of the chip can.
  2. Punch a hole in the metal end of the can.
  3. Cut a clear plastic circle slightly smaller than the lid.
  4. Glue the pony beads around the inside rim of the lid.  Be sure to leave room for the lid to snap back on the can.
  5. Cut the mirrored paper to make a triangular cylinder.  (Most chip cans need a 7¼-inch square.) Score the mirrored paper so it can be folded in thirds.


  1. Place faceted beads in the lid.  Glue the clear plastic to the pony beads.  This will hold the other beads in place but allow them to move around.
  2. Tape the decorative paper around the can.
  3. Fold the mirrored paper to form a triangular cylinder with the mirror on the inside.
  4. Slide the cylinder in the can.  Replace the lid.
