Altered Can!

Hello everyone, hope you are all having a good day.  Well, today i am trying a 'different' challenge. No cards today, i am entering the TRY IT ON TUESDAY challenge. The theme is Alter it - transform a can. So here it is, my creation! It used to be a breadcrumbs can but now it is my 'craft can' and holds my scissors, glue, pencils etc. 

Materials used:
Empty can of breadcrumbs
Patterened paper that i got with my scrapbooking album
Orange ribbon and various buttons from my stash
Flower embellishments from my stash that i put together with dimensionals and distressed the edges with Tim Holtz Distress ink (walnut stain).

Challenge entered: TRY IT ON TUESDAY Alter it - Transform a can http://tuesdaytaggers.blogspot.com/2011/11/alter-it-transform-can.html

Thanks for stopping. Best wishes, Jill :)


  1. Hi jill, thanks for visiting my blog and for your sweet comment. But you have lovely cards too, i can imagine you often use the Hero Arts flower stamp, it's gorgeous and versatile. And awesome that you already raised a lot of money for the cancer research fund!
