Lets Upcycle!!!!

Hi & Welcome

Fi here and Im up today with some upcyled items.

  With Christmas getting closer Im sure there are lot crafters out there already thinking of handmade items for Christmas presents.  With that in mind I went with some tins that I collect monthly, some of you might also have a lovely little collection of these.  Mine are kept in my craft drawer, which comfortably sit at least 30.  In these I keep all my embellishments stored nice and neatly and a quick glance I can see exactly what I have.  My problem is now what to do with the excess I seem to still have.   I decided why not decorate them, they are perfect for Christmas and you could pop some little everyday items in them, ie hair ties, split pins, mints, the skies the limit.  

What a perfect gift to give the kids for their teachers as a end of year present.

Left over scrap paper is all you need and I thought the little Scrapmatts Stars and Charms were perfect for embellishments.  

Here you can see the naked tin that I have used.

Product use:

Stars Stencil - ST5052

I hope you've enjoyed looking at my projects and it has inspired you to upcycle some household throw aways, turning them into something pretty.

Thanks for stopping by and I would love to see your creations in the Gallery!!!!

Until next month, happy crafting!!!
