Altered project



I can now reveal this altered project which I had to keep under wraps until it was given to the recipient :-) It started life as a large tub of herbs :-) I alcohol inked the lid, covered the base in paper which I then stamped. The M is made from a stamp which I cut out & layered & then mounted on a punched scallop circle whith a circle middle punched from the same paper, this was attached using the small pink clip & a brad. I used a jumbo brad & piece of checked ribbon to make the handle.



It is filled with emergency supplies of coffee tea & sugar for my friend Maddy :-)

That looks lovely Rach, a most worthwhile prezzy lol. I'm sure her bloodgroup is Nescafe! :)

Coffee certainly runs in the veins Calv - but I have to say that she makes a great cuppa :-) - when she has the ingredients!! Just as I like it :-D
