More gifts ....

How are you all today? Well yesterday I showed a gift bag I made foir our ongoing challenge aover at the combined Roses on Paper and Belles 'n Whistles challenge blog and that it is all about gifts this time.  And because it was so much fun to make that gift bag I decided to make another gift. This time I altered a tin can. It is one of the containers Prima flowers come packed in.

For my image I used  Tea Time  from the newest Belles 'n Whistles release. Well just part of it to fit my lid though. I colored it using Copics and did all the distressing with distress inks Brushed Corduroy and Bundled Sage. The flowers are from Prima and to add a little sparkle I used Stickles Stardust. The DP is from Basic Grey's newest collection Capella, right now available at Roses on Paper.

I hope I could inspire you a bit on how to use old packaging material and give it a new use as well as to stop by at our Roses on Paper & Belles 'n Whistles combined challenge blog and join us fore this fabulous challenge!

Thanks for stopping by!
