Re-Use and Recycle!

This project started life as a tin of peas!!!

I was getting so fed up of trying to rummage my containers for some of my smaller tools that decided to do something about it instead of buying yet another container!

I measured a sheet of glossy card, then inked it up using Tim Holtz Alcohol inks. The letters you see spell the word 'STUFF' and are from a small chipboard alphabet set, I embossed them with gold embossing powder, glued them around the tin and just added some other bits and pieces I had lying around on my craft table.

I'm quite pleased with this, because now I don't need to go 'a huntin' for the tools I need and can see them at a glance.

Thanks for looking in, take care

Brilliant, the alcohol effect looks great (I enlarged photo to see the detail). It's so useful too.

Looks great and also very clever and saves money as well!!! You will have to go into production. Cathy xxxx
