was/is the theme for April over on the Tando challenge blog….today is the last day for entries and its also my turn to share my recycled piece:-

I started with:-

and turned it into:-

a tin for my brushes…well, I've been using it naakeedd for my brushes for quite some time!! lol….but now its all labelled.

I started off by making a paper template, I then cut my double sided adhesive sheet and attached letters, tando butterfly and some mini stars…I then added my metal over the top, gently easing over the letters and adornments…then using my metal tools I eased the metal into place, sanded back and covered with treasure gold…. I also scribbled on the base.  The hardest bit was easing the metal onto the tin! grief!! I did get a couple of creases, but, hey, it all adds to the shabby look….to finish off I added a bit of ideology to my butterfly and a gem, and some gems to my stars.

Pop on over to the Challenge blog and see the creative makes for this month.
