Crafts: Enhanced Wastebasket

Following a trip to Paris, I spied this wastebasket at TJMaxx and after getting it home I realized that a photo we took with the Eiffel Tower in the background, fit almost perfectly into the photo of the Eiffel Tower on the wastebasket.  I used glossy Mod Podge to attach the photo and then covered the entire side of the wastebasket with a few more coats of Mod Podge.  
The photo of the Arc de Triomphe isn't in exact proportion but still, adding our photo to the mix makes the wastebasket unique and a constant reminder of our lovely trip.
I am linking to many of these BLOG PARTIES

This is so cool, can't believe how great your pictures look If I were you I would use that can on the counter for towels or something, seems like a waste (pardon the pun) to have it on the floor! Great Job!
