I hope that you are all having a fabulous week. I have really gotten into altering items lately and I am having so much putting these little projects together!! Today, I want to share a little project I did for one of my husbands co-workers. He walked into her office one day and saw these makeshift pencil holders. He turned to me for help and these are what I created.
Throughout the week he was able to gather information from her. So with those clues I got to work on these immediately. The first tin is wrapped in cork, ruffled trim and bling!! The second tin is wrapped in colored burlap, pleated twill and twine. I stamped one of the frames from Fancy Labels 2 stamp set, on chalkboard paper and embossed in white powder. I chose the chalkboard paper because, it was super black and it drew the attention of the eyes directly to it. I then cut it out using the coordinating Fancy Labels 2 Die. So if you guessed, the lady loves butterflies. I used different types of butterfly to make each can different, yet beautiful to be admired by all that walks into her office.
So I hope that today’s inspiration will encourage you to not only use your stamps on cards and layouts, but on any project!! Have a beautiful week.
