Save the Tin

This week’s 3D Challenge from Paper Craft Planet 3D 179, is a twist on an old favourite.  We’ve altered tins before, with 3d147, 3d76, 3d73, 3d33, 3d1,  There may have been more as well I’m sure, but those are the ones that come to memory right now.  This take on a tin alteration is a bit different in that it uses fabric as a method for closing the top.  I saw this idea originally on Pinterest, from MissPetel.

You’ll need some material …

Clean the tin, but to make it easier, just keep the wrapper & use that to measure how much paper you’ll need to cover the tin.

The one difference I did with the tin, is to attach the fabric right to the bottom.  I liked the inside of the tin being lined so that cookies or treats will not crumble as easily.

Okay that’s in there snug …

Tidy it up a bit & add your cookies!  Have fun!

Thanks to everyone for the kind comments & thanks to Adele of Creations by AR! for hosting this hop.

In the great green field, there was a template …

Would you like a chance for a free template from Creations By AR?  Yeah!!!!   Just leave a comment today on this entry (or for more chances to win, the other Design Team’s blogs as well!) & a winner will be announced on Saturday!

This release’s new template is called Old Mc Card & Old Mc Barn .

The card is 3-dimensional & the barn opens up into a box for treats.  Fun!  I added a Stampin’ Up Tractor stamp on the front of the card.  For the box, adding some texture with an embossing folder is always fun, just remember when you change the paper after it is cut, it changes the shape just ever so much smaller, so you may need to adjust, if you use this technique.

The Creations by AR Design Team Members came up some wonderful takes on these templates.  Visit their sites, leave a note to be entered into the hop for more chances to win.

Popcorn & Paper

Hope everyone is having a great summer.  We’ve been going non stop around here since June, either having company over for visits or out on holiday.  Spinning, we’ve been absolutely spinning, but in a good way.  We’ve also enjoyed a bunch of movies this summer … well except for magic Mike & my friend already apologized for bringing me to that one.  The kids have had a few movie nights with friends at the house & have a few more coming up before the summer ends.  I thought a quick & fun for this week’s 3D Challenge at Paper Craft Planet, 3d177, might be this cute little Popcorn Box from One Charming Party.

They (Bettijo B. Hirschi and Aimée Lowry) have provided a free template and detailed instructions for this fun project.  Just print & cut.  No fancy die cutting machines or intricate cuts here.

Here’s my go with it …

Have some fun with this one & remember, it doesn’t have to be filled with popcorn … this template would be great to welcome overnight guests with shampoos & toothpastes or birthday gift card & candy or whatever.  It’s just a cute template.

Have fun!
