WOW!!! First I just want to let Kassidy know that it has been such a pleasure to be part of the Inking It Up Crazy DT!!!! I have had such a fun time!!! Kassidy thought it would be fun to do a altered item. Well, this one has a really cute story.
My little girl just started Kindergarten this year and loves it!!! She has been doing her 'homework' at the kitchen table *the homework is usually just a notebook to practice letters, or a workbook we got at WalMart*. My husband and I told her that if she was old enough to keep her room clean, we would get her a desk. Well, she kept her end of the bargain, so we kept ours. We found a really nice desk at a second-hand store (D.I.) for only $15. We did a little bit of work on it, but it now looks like new. Well, the other day she asked if she could keep pencils and crayons in her room (we've had trouble with her writing on the walls) so we told her that we will give her a chance. We don't live near any big stores, so I started thinking. I've been under the weather (stupid head cold/cough thing!!!) so I've been eating a lot of soup. So I decided that the soup cans would work perfectly!!! So here's what I made for her. :)
Like I said I started out with a soup can. Since it has an edge I used some extra material I had lying around to put over the edge. There might be another way to do it, but I just used hot glue.
I glued it around the top, then put some glue on the inside and pushed the rest of the material down. (I hope that makes sense)
After that I just used Mod Podge to glue the paper to the can. I used my Cricut to cut out the words and added those onto it using a little more Mod Podge. Add a ribbon and it's done!
Make sure you stop over at Inking It Up Crazy to see what the rest of the DT came up with!! As always, thanks so much for taking the time to stop by!!!! I love having my friends visit!!! :) Thanks so much!! :)
