Sugar Sweet Paper Treats Challenge Project

Hi, everyone!
This is my project for the January challenge at Sugar Sweet Paper Treats.  The challenge was to alter something.  This is a simple coffee can.  I covered it with paper, then fussy cut the border and added that to the can, then used TONS of Stickles to make the flowers all shimmery!  I even used my Imagine.  I discovered that the color pallete of Lori's Garden matched my papers perfectly, so the back is decorated with cuts from that Imagine cartridge and also lots of Stickles.  The "ribbon" actually isn't ribbon at all.  It is rayon seam binding that I colored using alcohol inks, then scrunched and dried with my heat gun.  This project was simple and will serve as a tool caddy since I have filled up every available container with scrapping tools!! haha

I love comments, so let me know what ya think!

Blessings and hugs!
Linda

Here's the back:


I photographed this project before all the glue was completely dry which is why the edges appear to be sticking up.  As the glue dried, they are now flush with the paper, but I just couldn't wait to share the pictures!! haha
