And now for something completely different... we're altering tins and jars over at Crafting with Dragonflies this fortnight, so I'm here to share my recipe.
A heap of lace, some ribbon, string of pearls and buttons, paper and card, an image from our sponsor, Digistamps4joy and of course Promarkers, liquid pearls and plenty of Stickles. The final ingredient? A tin, such as this:
This recipe does not call for beans specifically, it can be any tinned food you like. Although, if you're as big a fan of Mexican food as we are, the above (or similar) is likely to be somewhere in your pantry!
Tools: Craft basic such as scissors, glue, dies, etc.
Print, colour and die-cut image. Add liquid pearls and Stickles and leave to marinade for about an hour.
Wrap tin in neutral colour paper. Wrap papered tin with several types of lace. Wind ribbon around tin. Wrap string of pearls around tin and attach at the back.
Attach image to front of tin, and adhere buttons to the sides with silicon glue. Allow to dry for one day.
Fill tin with tools and place on desk.
