Shabby Chic Altered Tin Can

Shabby Chic Altered Tin Can:

Hi all,
I am sharing another uber cute upcycle project today. I really hate throwing away those "of-great-use" tin cans that watches comes in. I usually use it to store some beads/stationery.
I wanted to give it a real nice face lift and make it super cute as a desk accessory.

Altered Shabby Chic style tin can

I recently purchased some amazing pattern paper packs , laces and flowers from charming Neha from CraftBuzz. I wanted to put them to good use in this project. So I first took a pretty in pink sheet from the pack and covered the outside as well the insides.
This pack from Eno Greetings comes with co ordinating die cuts and borders. So I added a scalloped border and lace trims on the top and bottom edges. I lined the inner edge as well.
I dyed some ribbon using picked raspberry Distress inks and added a trim and a bow to the bottom.

Then I created a shabby lace flower with adorned it with bright yellow flowers. It is start of spring afterall. So let it be springy and refreshing!!

The total effect is so shabby - so chic - yet refreshing :)
