Distressed Tin Can

Hello Friends

I hope you are all well! It has been so long since I last blogged!

I wanted to show you my new project.

Some lovely home decor :)

I was going for a vintage shabby chic look.

 I made this with the new Unity SMAK kit Be You For You

I love everything about this kit!!

I especially LOVE the sentiment I used.

If you know me I love to upcycle things.

 This was an old bean can I was about to throw away.

 I saved it, cleaned it out and painted it white with acrylic paint.

 Once it dried I took a nail file and distressed it.

  Then I made a label to put on the front and put some lovely flowers inside. 

Here is a quick video of how I made it. 

I hope you are inspired to make your own :)

DIY Christmas Wrapping Paper

                                                              Hello My lovely friends 

I made my own wrapping paper last night by stamping on to plain brown paper. 

I was experimenting with different stamps and inks and paint. 

This is the one I loved the most using white craft paint. 

This paper actually looks like a fancy roll I saw in a shop a few weeks ago that was really expensive.

My brown paper only cost a pound from the pound shop. 

 I had everything else in the house so it was basically free to make!!

I love the way they turned out. It looks so pretty!! 

I will tell you that this is quite time consuming as you need to wait on the paint to dry.
I just stamped a section at a time and then did other projects in between drying times. 

Which was about 20 mins but you could also use a heat took to speed up the drying.

 I think it was totally worth the time it takes to make this cause it turned out beautiful.

And you will also have wrapping paper that you made and no one else has. 

All you need is white craft paint and any rubber stamp. 

I used this large snowflake from the Unity this is from the Midnight Kisses KOTM.

 I love this stamp because it is huge!! I found that if you use a bigger stamp it covers more space.  

All you do is pour a THIN layer of craft paint on to a plate or flat surface. 

If you paint is too thick it will leave too much on the stamp and you will not have a good impression.

 Then take your stamp and press into your plate of paint. 

You can use a paint brush to cover any areas that it did pick up paint.

You can also just paint the stamp with paint if you prefer.  

Then stamp on to your paper. 

Take note it does not make a perfect image of the stamp but the impression is lovely all the same. 

Also just like snowflakes everyone is different :) 

Once it was dry I wrapped my presents. 

I put a gemstone in the middle of each snowflake that faced the front of each present.  

Then to finish I tied some string.

I hope you love my wrapping paper as much as I do.  

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog today!!
