Home for my Magnolias and Sugar Nellies


Well this is what I've come up with. I bought a Maya Road coffee break tin painted it with white acrylic paint, then covered it with Bo Bunny papers, put some eyelets around and threaded some pink ribbon through. Punched some flowers from different coloured card, added more ribbon on the handles..... oh!!!! and of course there is Tilda sitting on top. I've just come across some Molton Brown boxes I've had for ages, gonna do something with those now. This altered art is very addictive.

Nice, like the Bella Palace SBS Sistah Veronica made for me -- do they eyelets just go through the paper, or also thru the tin?

Very nice! Yes... altered art is very addictive. I guessed what Magnolias were... Tilda, right? I'm off to do a search on Sugar Nellies.

That's so pretty Vicki!!! I have a load of the Asda lunch tins I bought a few years ago when they were reduced but I've never got round to decorating them - I just use them for storage in my "scrap corner" at the moment.
