Hi! It's Candy ... today I wanted to share a recycled tin that, with the help of washi tape, has now become a beautiful pen holder. (PLEASE NOTE: Although I placed Distress Markers in the tin for the picture, they should never be stored upright ...)
I started with an empty soup can, which I painted white. Then, I wrapped a strong adhesive around the can to hold burlap in place. (Elizabeth Craft Designs or Scor-Tape works best). Adhere burlap.
Next, I placed a strip of washi tape onto white cardstock -- this will keep the colors bright and true, since washi tape is transparent. I adhered that to the center of the can and then added strips of additional washi tape directly on the burlap.
I added some pearl ribbon and a die cut and medallion to the center (to cover the edge of the paper) and it's done.
I cannot wait to fill it with pens and pencils and set on my desk.
