Altered Treat Can

Last week on Donna's Tuesday Tutorial Live Web Show I showed you a little treat can that I had altered. Here it is, in more detail. I am hoping to post a tutorial on the flowers (super easy) in a couple days.

This can was a gift from my friend, Dove Chocolatier Laura Miller, and was filled with Chardonnay Wine Brittle–it was super yummy! The distressed edge on the can reminded me of the Distrezz-It-All so I thought it would be fun to alter with Donna Salazar papers (naturally) and fill with goodies for another gift.

I covered the body of the can with a strip of Donna Salazar Mosaics Paper. Then I stamped a sentiment (from Stampin' Up!) on the tag and inked the edges. I tied the tag to the tin with waxed twine and a button. You can get the buttons I used in the Seaside Embellishment Set in my shop. I then sprayed the entire can with Smooch Spritz in Gold Glow and Spun Sugar just to help meld all the colors together. I love how Smooch “sticks” to buttons and plastic things! Now I just have to figure out what to put inside!

Happy Scrapping!
