Recycling tins

Yes,  again with the gala stuff, but here are some recycled large coffee tins that I have re-crafted into Treasure tins.  Hopefully I will get at least 6 made to sell at the St James Gala.


I use the handy dandy Zyron which allows me to apply the paper with a lot more easy and some what quicker than double side tape.  4 Stripes of 1x12 inches strip to make the rosette and then I used the even more handy dandy big shot and sizzix flower for the centre flower. 
I covered the tin and flowers with Mod Podge.  
On the lid I adhered some scallop punched flowers.

St james Gala update

Well,  the gala is only just over 5 weeks away.  I have started my stuff for the craft stall and here are some of the BFF (best friends forever) mini tag albums.  
Last year one lady purchased them all!!

 They are very simple to make.  Taking about 30 minutes for each one. 1 sheet of Cardstock will made 2 album covers and then I use small envelopes and scrap pieces of CS for the inside. 
A little ribbon and some wool embellish the spine.

Time for Fun

I purchased a paper package from Up2scrap - Hot of the press - 'Time for fun' and I did this layout using the NZ Paper Chase August challenge template.  
I cut half of a frame from the base paper and folded it down.  As the paper is not double sided I inked the back with SU inks (tango, olive and razeberry).  I stamp and cut out the leaves from recycled paper which has given it the texture look. 
For the tags I used a chain off the price tag from a dress I recently purchased.
