Repurposed Can

Shew, it's been a loooong time since I posted anything!  I've been a little busy with work, but MOSTLY with working on my new website where I'll be selling my crafts! :D So I've been busy making things to "stock" my site with as well.

Anyway, it's my sister's b'day on Friday and one of the goodies I'll be giving her is this can which I repurposed into a storage thingie (I'll be filling it up with things for her - who likes getting empty stuff, right?!).

All I did was decoupage some pretty scrapbook paper around it, coloured the edges of the tin (top and bottom) in with a gold paint-pen and decorated it with flowers and things.

Been missing you a lot, Monique. Glad that you have been busy in a nice way. Wish you lots of luck with your site.

This box is soooooo sweet. Your sis will be really touched. The paper looks so sweet. And the flower is the prettiest.
