As you re-Cookie-cans to use with Mod-hodgepodge
With the holidays over, you may have a very important question: how will the cans re-use of the cookie? Our beautiful family of cans invites seemed to be this year for Christmas, filled with cookies, nuts, and other Goodies. I hate to throw nice metal container – they are also perfect for Recycling-crafts - projects.So I throw them out, don’t you. I think the doses of decoupage with the leftover fabric. In case that you spent doing the maths in your head, for a total of $0. If you’re wondering how to recycle cookie tins, that's a great idea. Here’s how I did it.Collect re-use holiday Cookie tinsThisRecycling-cans – Supplied; of any size and shape fabric remnants – bigger enough to put the container folkart acrylic paint – Pure titanium (optional)Mod-hodgepodge gloss paint brush scissors, Craft knife or rotary cutterRulerPencilRibbonButtonsCraft glue This first step is optional. If you have cookie tins with a dark pattern on the fabric is a bit thin, you want to paint, perhaps, to the container. I have the green and black container, so that the pattern doesn’show t, through the tissue. The next step is to prepare the fabric with Mod-hodgepodge. As a result, it will be easier to cut without fraying, and easier to use, the container smoothly. Just a medium layer of Mod hodgepodge of paint, on the fabric and let dry. Once the fabric is dry, cut one edge straight. use this as a reference. Put your fabric in the container and measure where you need to cut at the top. I didn’t even use a ruler, but you can. I just marked it with my finger. Once you do this, to cut, to fit the container. you can Place a medium layer of Mod-smorgasbord on the container, and then carefully wrap the fabric, smoothing as you go. Let it dry for 15 – 20 minutes. Paint several layers of Mod smorgasbord on the outer side of the seal. I didn’t paint the box, but you can. I've just mopped, the Mod-pick-and-mix when it is on the tin. Yes, I am a messy crafter. The cover is easier than you think. Place the cover flat on the back of the fabric and trace with a pencil. Now you have a circle on the fabric. You cut about 1/2″ extra around the circle on the outside – so then cut a larger circle, as they followed.Why do you do this? Since you're going to Mod smorgasbord of the circle at the top and then cut the overhang and fold it down. You can see how I did in the picture. They do it all the way around the lid, cutting and Mod Podging. You cut the extra with scissors. Band Add to the edges of the lid and the buttons on the top. If you want to.
