Altered Pen Pot

Good morning all hope your well.
and we still have another week for the 
current challenge which is to
Alter something.

This week i have made a pot for my
Polychromos pencils, because i bought
them individually over a period of time i
don't have a fancy tin to keep them in, so
needed a pot.
What better way than to recycle and 
this extra large baked bean tin was 
the perfect size for them all.

I made it to match the tissue box from last week.
I have coloured the Teddy Bea's with
my poly pencils.
The papers are from Raspberry Road, i resized 
them on the computer to fit.
I have edged the top and bottom with lace trim.
The flower bouquet is made with flowers from
Wild orchid crafts.

I have also added some paint fusion butterflies.

I hope you have been inspired
to have a go and make your own
pen pots, they are so easy to make
and your doing your bit by recycling,lol. 

I'ts also release day over at Teddy Bo and co
and there are some
fabulous new images and a new friend,
so go and check them out.

 Thanks for stopping by today
and i'll be back later
 for Papertake Weekly.
take care

    I love recycle.. You did a beautiful recycle project. Recently I did an altered project, see on my blog.

  2. I always recycle, but never thought of using tins as storage pots, must remember to tell the dish washers that all finagle get washed. I love your tin.
