Pretty Tin Can

Charisma Cardz Challenge #5 this week was to use something that is not meant to be used for crafting. I went for the easy option and recycled an old tin can from the recycling box and decorated it to make a new pen pot for my desk at work. I covered it with my favourite colours - pin and brown - added some pretty flowers and lots of butterflies and was done. A pretty quick make for me!

And here it is...


Stamps: None

Papers: Early Espresso, Sweet & Sour DSP (Retired) both from Stampin' Up

Inks: None

Accessories: Early Espresso Satin Ribbon (Retired) from Stampin' Up, Heart Border Punch from Martha Stewart, Pippi Butterfly Die from Memory Box, Floral 3 LR0107 Die from Marianne Creatables, Butterfly Die 6003/0023 from Joy Crafts!, Card Candi from Craftworks Cards

And that's all from me for this post folks! Thanks for stopping by.
