Our lovely Isa over at The Craft Barn set me a bit of a challenge a few weeks ago, to alter something using their new Crafty Secrets Stamp sets. Now if you know these stamp sets, they don't, at first sight, shout alteration to you.
see what I mean? Lovely but for altering? It took me a while and a few sleepless nights planning but eventually I decided to have a go altering this
So I carefully measured around the carton and cut a piece of lightweight card which I stamped coloured and inked to make this
So here's the 360o view
Pretty stamps are they not?
Being a keen gardener it struck me that this would make a perfect container for string and twine so to finish I punched a hole in the top of the tin and fitted an eyelet using my silent setter
Now all I have to do is untangle the string I put inside. I may give it a light spray varnish too to protect it when I use it outside.
The girls have made a few more samples using these stamps over on The Craft Barn blog, be lovely if you could pop over and go see. Leave us a comment too if you feel the urge.
See you there
