DT Project #1 by Minxy : Featuring

7DotStudios 'Wonderland' Collection Papers & Stickers 

Hiya Snazzy Folks
This month as you know we have had the wonderland papers to play with and boy oh boy are they lush, But with such lovely paper comes the thought that you have to cut it and maybe cover it up with other elements.. those paper treasurers out there will know what I mean. So I wanted to make something that showed as much of the pattern on the paper as possible. 
So I came up with this:
It's a old tin can, And a fairly simple project to do.

I cut my piece of 12x12 paper {mushroom & smoke} into 3 equal sections as the tin was 2 large for the sheet to just wrap around, plus it looked nicer.
I got out the sewing machine and zigzag stitched the 3 pieces together, overlapping each piece and making sure the piece would wrap around the tin with an overlap at the end.
Finishing the piece was a little tricky as I had to hand pierce with a poky tool & stitch the open sides after it was on the tin, which I did by loosely stitching and then pulling tight once it was in place.

Then to finish I added some of the wonderland stickers, and outlined them with complimentary colours of neoII pastels and rubbed in so they almost blend into the background.

And hay presto, You have a fun funky pot for your supplies to sit in.
I hope you have enjoyed my little project for today, I'll be back on wednesday with more wonderland fun.
Till then Stay Inky
