Happy Monday, everyone. I hope it was a good one. We saw a good movie, and Mom got to sit in the first row, center seat at a Donny Osmond concert. She is flying high right now. Just wondering………did you get one of these for the holidays?
Isn’t it a beauty? Well, I had this huge popcorn container, and all the popcorn was finished. I thought it might be perfect to use on an idea I’m borrowing from Ballard’s.
Perfect, right? I received a Silhouette Cameo for Christmas, and so, this would be the perfect time to play around with it and turn the left over container into something useful and good-looking.
We usually feed Gracie a raw diet, but we keep dry food on hand for outings like camping and day trips. It has been living on top of our fridge, and it is not a pretty sight. I knew that not only would I get to play around with the Silhouette, but we would be able to switch out the dog food bag for an attractive tin.
I did the project this weekend, and it was in the 50’s here. It was nice to be outside and to do some painting while the snow was melting all around me. I had spray paint primer on hand so I decided to go ahead and prime the tin. After one coat of primer, I grabbed some white and started spraying.
While the tin was drying, I worked on a design that I wanted to cut out with the Silhouette. The possibilities are endless, and I am still learning all about this new machine. It is so exciting!!! I used a simple font and made it large.
Then I added some enhancement. I didn’t make it exactly like Ballard’s, but I am thrilled with how it turned out. Plus, it was so much cheaper than their tins which started at $45.
I got a paws up from the real judge who walked into the room and sat right down beside her tin. I think she likes it.
The sitting didn’t last long. She quickly turned her attention to the camera’s clicking noise and was up right by the lens. Overall,
I we are happy with this little project.
Have you done anything interesting with your popcorn tins?
