Hello all! I am Super Excited to be a part of the new 'Fab Four' design team at Scrapyland! I have created a unique photo display - made out of aluminum cans! The photos can be changed over and over, I applied a small glue dot to the back just to keep it sturdy. I love to alter items and this was no different. Here is a brief walk through of how I constructed this project. **Caution photo overload** :)
I first painted some clean aluminum cans with black spray paint. In a
previous life - they were cans of corn :)
I decided to use Teresa Collins Memories 6x6 paper pad to cover the outside of the cans. I also
chose a Martha Stewart punch to add some detail to the perimeter.
I chose to use the Cheery Lynn Designs - French Pastry Doily die as my base for the front of the photo
display with the paper collection.
I added some white seam binding, chipboard elements from the same
collection and a cute handmade charm to both cans.
I made some wire holders to plug into the top. I curled wire around
itself and voila! I use more paper from the collection
and chipboard as a base for the cans.
I created a makeshift topper, using a plain circle die cut. Finally, I added
some black lace from my stash around the edges and a paper flower to each can.
For a final touch, I added some pearl trim.
To add something fun and quirky, I made some rosettes using Tim Holtz rosette die. This die makes this process so much faster!
Last but not least I added some funny picture memories of my
Don't cha' just love pictures and recycling?! I do! (obviously) So, that's
all for me guys. Thanks so much for stopping by! Be sure to check out Scrapyland
