Since it is so easy and so cute I thought I'd share it for Make & Take Monday. Because there is a printable template it took little time to put it all together.
Print the template from the link below on cardstock or patterned paper and cut out the four pieces: watering can body, spout, curved handle and back handle. Stamp any designs at this time.
Watering Can Template
Working on the "wrong" side of the paper, score and fold the dashed red lines on the watering can body. I also inked the edges and folds to add depth.
Apply adhesive to the folds on the "right" side of the paper and bring sides together to form the can body.
Curve the front flaps and tuck into the sides of the watering can using a dab of adhesive to keep in place.
Take the spout and fold with "wrong" sides turned to the inside as indicated by the red dashed lines in the template.
Apply adhesive to the end of the spout's inner sides to hold them together.
Apply adhesive to the base of the spout and attach to the front of the watering can body.
Attach the curved top handle ensuring that the handle curves to the back. (I didn't add this to my example because the flower pot would not fit.)
To cover the printed words and the other side of the designer paper I cut a second strip for the handle for the back and glued the wrong sides together.
Fold the handle for the back on the dashed red lines as indicated in the template.
Attach to the back of the can to form a ‘D’ shape.
Now your can is ready to be decorated!

While I was working on my watering can I thought how easy it would be to use the same template to create a teapot. Of course I had to try it out right away.
I changed the spout and created a lid, tada...a teapot. I used the picture of the teapot in the background as inspiration for my little paper teapot. It is just the right size to hold a few packages of herbal tea.
