It is 5 days away to Valentine’s day! Excited? Not me :'(. I am single and I am happy. Anyways, I want to share what I made last night as a Valentine’s gift to a friend. Last time, she mentioned that she wants something that she can stuff her precious things. Since, I am broke, I thought of gifting her that but in a most pocket friendly way :P.
There was this old tin can which was just lying in my cupboard(perfume packaging from Body Shop). I thought of making it into something useful so I can gift it to her. So, I came up with this (I guess) pretty vintage inspired re-purposed tin can.
tin can, kraft paper(you can use any printed paper also depending on the design that you want), paper napkins, music note printed paper, fabric lace, pearl beads, white glue, thin brush, stick glue, pencil, scissors, needle and thread, any printed word that you want, I used “HAPPINESS”, jute string and button
After covering the lid, from top to side around, I started accentuating it.
On how I made the spiral rose, you can refer here http://tallystreasury.com/2011/05/paper-orchids-and-spiralled-paper-roses/
I used a paper napkin(which I got from a restaurant 😛 ^_^)in making the spiralled paper rose then I glued a pearl bead in the center of it. I made three of them.
Then I started to work on the lid by gluing halfway center across a fabric lace then placed the three flowers beside it. I cut a butterfly and a feather from the music note printed paper. Also her initial which is “M” with a heart on it(stitched around) I added a jute string on the feather’s stem and a button on top of it. Then I cut the word Happiness.
HAPPY VALENTINE’S DAY Sweeties! I hope you liked this idea.
