Did you have a good weekend?
I had a very busy day at work on Saturday but then a very relaxing, lazy day yesterday.
My youngest boy is back to school and my oldest has is second from last prelim exam right now. By this time tomorrow he'll be done and dusted till the big higher exams in the summer.
Today I have a little recycling for you. The following altered tin is from M & S and I have mountains of them empty at home (what can I say I like the M & S mint tins).
I've been wondering for quite sometime what to do with them.
You know us crafters don't like to throw anything out if we think we can use it in one form or another.
Remember the crochet thistles?
You know the one, my new smaller thistle from earlier last week here, well, that wee beauty fits perfectly in these tins.
Sticking with the Scottish theme the tin had to be altered using some tartan paper.
The tartan paper is by Craftwork cards and the stamp by Unity stamps, which is white embossed and die cut with Spellbinder die labels 4 with some white ink added to give a chalky feel. I then threaded the back ribbon behind the label and around the back tying to the side to finish.
The thistle was then wrapped in tissue paper inside to finish.
Something a little different from me today!
A change is good as a rest.
That's all from me till tomorrow, I am building up quite a list of card requests here so I better get my mojo in full flow and get into card making mode.
