Desk Tidy?



Alter a Can is the new challenge over at Try it on Tuesdays, once again we are sponsered by the Craft Barn, with a gift voucher for the lucky winner.
The DT have some super examples again, so pop over for all the details.

So this started out as a can of Baked Beans, very delicious on a slice of toast.
I used sticky-back canvas to cover the tin, which had been stamped up using a variety of   Stampers Anonymous and Chocholate Baroque stamps. The trimmings are from my stash.
It is a realy useful container for my scraps of ribbon, lace and petals. Did you notice my title,  'desk tidy', it does help to have an aim, but my desk is always work in progress. I can never find a thing after a tidy-up session.

Thankyou for stopping by to take a look at my Altered Can, your comments are greatly appreciated.
