Altered Can

Hi there!

It is time for another challenge at That Craft Place Challenge Blog. The challenge theme for this fortnight is Alter a Can. I have to say that I had never altered a can before and I really had lots of fun playing with this one. My can was quite big, 9" tall and 5" diameter. It used to be the can where I stored my ribbons but recently it became to small and I decided to store them somewhere else. I decided to make a can to store some sewing tools in the mill house and that gave me the chance to use some papers that I was saving for some special project.

Hope you like this :)

In this can:
- Patterned papers from MME
- Bronzee Tone Scisors Charm Pendant
- Buttons
- Fantasy Buttons Dress It Up - A Stitch in Time (sewing machine)
- Flat back pearls
- Lace 
- Ribbon
- Brown twine
- Distress Inks (Tattered Rose and Vintage Photo)
- Die cuts (Spellbinders and Die-namics)
- Paper roses
- Resin cabochon
Everything from That Craft Place
