Well, it was suppose to be sunny today, but again the weather man has predicted wrong and it is raining. So you can only imagine how tickled I was to be able to work in my studio another day without feeling guilty of not working outside, which by the way needs lots of TLC! :) I have been working on a couple of items for this past week and manage to put the finishing touches on them as they need to be mailed out this week to a sweet friend but first I have to fill it with some eye candy so I cannot divulge what kind just in case she happens to read this. LOL!!!.
I stepped out of my comfort zone and decided to alter a tin first. For some time I had been wanting to do this and just hadn't gotten the nerve. I am pleased with the way the way it turned out and if I had known how easy it was to do these tins, I would have done it sooner! I don't own a scor-pal yet, so I used the next best thing to make my score lines on the base of the paper for the circumference of the tin which was my X-acto 12x12 paper cutter. It has indentation lines every 1/2" on the cutting board. I guess it just goes to show that you can accomplish some of the same techniques even if you do not have the proper tools that everyone else is using.
I had been at Michael's this week and saw these glass tea-lite holders and remembered seeing this idea by Becca. It took me all but maybe 10 minutes to complete this project and I think I need to go back to Michael's and get some more of these as they would be wonderful for last minute gifts. As soon as I finish posting here, I am off to Michael's! LOL!!!
Here are the two items together that are going to my friend. I still need to make a card to go with it, but ran out of pink ribbon and the white sheer ribbon, so two more items to add to my Michael's list. LOL!! I hope you had a restful weekend and was able to get in some crafting. Stay tuned as I will have some new items to show you about the middle of the week.
