You will need:

A used bubble mailing envelope, 9” x 12” or larger
Masking or duct tape
Craft glue
Items for decorating such as craft foam shapes, rhinestones, feather boa pieces


From one thickness of the mailing envelope, cut a rectangle to fit snugly around a soda can or water bottle. (Dimensions for a standard-size soda can: 4” x 10”)

Wrap the rectangle, bubble-side in, around the can or bottle. Tape ends to secure.

Cut a piece of felt to cover the outside of the can cozy. Glue it on and allow to dry.

Decorate your can cozy as desired, be creative!
