Altered Tin Can with Thank You Tag by GDT Anila Dikay

Hello Crafters!


Today at the Rainbow Craftykari blog, I am here to inspire you for the new challenge for the month of May. 

The theme for this challenge is "The Blooms Magic". Checkout the details here.


As an inspiration post, I have two projects here today where I have used the flowers made by me. 

(Please do bear with me as this is a very picture heavy post. But as I wanted to cover each and every side/angle of the project I could not skip adding any of these pictures...Not to mention some close-ups of my blooms.... ;-))




Let's begin with the first one!!!


Project 1 - Altered Tin Can


You can make blooms by taking a square paper and fold it into half and again into half. Now in this folded conical portion cut a heart shape. When the paper unfolds a flower is formed. Make three more such flowers with little varying sizes. Now to assemble the flowers together. Pinch and fold each and every petal of all the four flowers into half. This forms creased effect. Don't be very perfect, The imperfections give it a more natural look. After pinching all the flowers arrange them one over the other in descending form. Lastly add pearls / beads in the center to form the core.

 


I covered the can with a corrugated sheet I received as a packing material. Stuck a white laced burlap ribbon at the bottom and a crochet lace at the top of the can. I made 3 bright colored blooms for this project and covered the center of the blooms with tiny white pearls. Arranged and stuck the blooms on the can and added few leaf die-cuts. Lastly tied a twine around the can and attached a ready tag with a wooden clothespin.

Few more pictures






 My second project is a "Thank you Tag"



I began with stenciling the card with texture paste and covered it all with white gesso. Next, I used color splash and heat set it. I made 3 blooms again for this project (same blooms). This time I covered the center of the blooms with black beads. Added leaf die-cuts and a butterfly. Adhered a heat-embossed sentiment with foam adhesive. Tied two ribbons at the top. Lastly, to cover up the empty spaces I doodled the texture with a black gel pen.

 Few more pictures





I had great fun making these blooms. I hope you too enjoyed my post.


Hoping to see you participate in the challenge and also looking forward to what flowers you all make.


Thank you for dropping by. Do leave your valuable comments below.

Love,

Anila

Altered Embroidery Hoop Tutorial by GDT Rashmi Tater

Hello Dear crafters,

 

This is Rashmi Today. Wishing u a very bright morning!

 

I say so because I got a real a real bright project to share with u guys! THANKS TO THE TEAM RCS and Maninder for the opportunity. It’s a pleasure to be a part of this super hardworking team! Kudos to all of you for your efforts!

 

For long, Altered Embroidery hoop was in my to do list so I combined an old handkerchief and the hoop  into a totally bright thanking goodie (trust me no one will ever find out what it was before!)

 

So let’s begin, grab your supplies and let your imaginations fly!

 


Firstly fit the handkerchief in the hoop and secure with backing ring, trim of the excess from behind. (Please Note: You can take any size of Embroidery hoop)

 


Coat the entire with prima heavy gesso from the Mixmedia essentials kit (front and back) and allow drying. Until then grab your supplies.


 

I used some broken clay embellishments I made using prima mould. (Supplies pic attached)

  

 

 

Then stencil the hoop using Prima modeling paste from the Prima MixMedia essentials kit and cover the heart with gesso and metal beads.

Tip : You can use a mix of talcum powder to your gesso to create a quick texture paste.

 


Now it’s time to make a layout use multi medium gel from cinnabar projects. It perfectly sticks; glue gun can be used for the thermacol heart
Tip: You can use fabric glue for the adherence,if you are running out of Multi Medium Gel.

 

 

I used a thank u tag too (as this is a gift for a dear friend) and I also have added a fussy cut butterfly. (I love it all white too: P)


 

Then spray with the colors of your choice loads of options are available in the store. Remove the excess color by wet wipes. 

 



 

Glorious butterfly. U can highlight with shimmer and glossy accents.

 

 

Finally the Full Reveal.

 


Mix media is all about playing around. Let your heart lead you to creating something new each time. You will start with scrap and end up with beauty in your hand. 

 

Get inspired with things around you and try to make your own version of mixmedia artwork (difficult to get same set of supplies anyways ) but I surely know we crafters are big time hoarders and will definitely have loads of things we are saving for a future project just use a few each time from your treasure be it broken pendants to old keys . Just mix and match, play around and you’ll see just like me you will fall in love with Mix media.

Altered Pen Stand with A Card by Our Guest DT Kriti

Hello lovely crafty friends,


A very good morning to you all. Hope you all had an awesome weekend.


Do you guys have some empty food cans!! don't no what to do with it?? Do you throw it away?? Then stop thinking too much because today our Guest DT Kriti has came with awesome tutorial on recycling the cans in our Teaching and Learning Program and she has a card tutorial also. So grab your cold drinks and enjoy it.


Over to you Kriti,


Hey Everyone, 


I am so happy and excited to be a part of Rainbow Craftykari Guest Design Team member, heartiest thanks to Maninder Kaur and Rainbow Craftykari Team for this opportunity. Today, I have come up with a tutorial post for the ongoing Monthly Challenge “Revamp your Scraps”, for details HERE

 

What do you do with the cans when you are done with the food item? You probably throw them right into the recycling bin. Maybe you wait a while to accumulate a bunch before you chuck them out, or maybe you toss them every week. Either way, you are parting ways with a valuable craft supply. You can use your crafty skills to turn empty cans into all sorts of cool things! Here is my idea to get you going, you can use it to hold pens, pencils, or paint brushes.

 

Tutorial for Altering the can-

 

Firstly apply black acrylic paint on the edges. 





Take two pattern papers, 

a. One whose length is equal with the height of the can and breadth approximately 4 inches.

b. Second whole length is equal with the height of the can and breadth approximately 2 inches less than the circumference of the can.




Firstly paste the first pattern paper and then paste the second pattern paper (don't apply the glue on the above two corners,bend them), in that way so that the first paper pop out from the second one. If I am making it too complex, refer the picture.




Leave it to dry and then let your imagination run wild with your craft stash. You can use any colour of lace, flowers, etc. I have used pink colored lace as it was going with my pattern papers.





Next I used my script stencil and made some scripts texture using modelling paste.

After the modelling paste dry I took bubble stamp and stamped on it to give a bit more contrast and to fill in a bit more of the open space.




The beauty of this project is that once you've created the basic tin, it can be then customized in any way you like, creating a totally unique finished item which perfectly reflects your individual character and tastes! The possibilities are endless, so, what will you add to yours??? Silk flowers, pearls or gems perhaps???


I have decorated it with some leaves, flowers, twine, MDF butterfly and in the last added a tag.




Some close up pictures of the altered tin,






Tutorial for card-

-> Take a black cardstock of 4'' by 6'' size and score on 6'' side at 3''.

->Take a pattern paper of the 3-3/4'' by 2-3/4'' size (I have taken matching pattern paper as that of tin).

-> Distress the edges of the pattern paper with the distress tool (I have used scissors).

-> Adhere the pattern paper onto the black cardstock.

-> Next I made some script texture using modelling paste and script stencil. Next made some stamping using bubble stamp.

-> After that I collected some embellishments.



Adhered them onto the card and the card is ready.




Some close up pictures of the card,






The final pictures of both the projects,




Hope you liked it.
