DSP Scraps Burlap Travel Tins
You could say I am a little obsessed with tins at the moment. My upline Michelle Last created an amazing project for us at the craft weekend I attended in Birmingham recently. So naturally I had to ask where she got the tins from.
The company is called Tinware Direct and you can buy tins in bulk or as samples - 10 samples for £10 or 20 samples for £20. I bought a wide variety of samples and when I looked at the tins I have used in this project I immediately thought cotton bud container.... Don't ask me why!
With a lot of my favourite DSP retiring I thought it would be a perfect project to use up some of my scraps.
I have kept the design simple and consistent. I also didn't want a lot of embellishments or details as you need to be able to handle these containers everyday and possibly pack them in your cases for holidays.
This project was really quick. I cut some scraps of my Subtles Designer Series Paper to fit the lid, rounded the corners and sponged the edges with Sahara Sand Ink.
I then wrapped burlap ribbon around the tin and added a 2cm strip of DSP. I wish I had sponged the edges on these pieces but I forgot!!
I then found a quirky font called 1942 Report and printed labels which I punched out using the Word Window Punch.
I hope you have enjoyed my project today. I love how being creative with paper crafts is not limited to cards and gift boxes. Come back and see my next project using DSP scraps and Tinware products on Wednesday!
