Our Creative Corner

Spotted the theme over at "Our Creative Corner" and thought I'd share my re-cycled pen pot with you. It's made from an old baked beans tin with TH tatty flowers cut out of a foil tray, and painted with Mermaid Fresco paint. They have been attached with eyelets using the big bite. And finally I glued a scrap of pale blue ribbon from my stash around, as the flowers looked a little bit lost.
Love a good re-cycle!
