Just a quick posting today as I need to get back to my Most Important Tin Coverage Mission. Don't try and stop me, my Tins need me.
I wrote up the tutorial for you yesterday (find it HERE).....I know it's a very basic pattern an' all, and many of you don't actually need such a picture heavy tute for something this easy. But I LOVE the idea of using simple projects with simple words and a gazillion step-by-step pictures to enable Newbie Hookers.
I've had a few comments about Sharp Edges. Yes, those inner tin edges can be devilishly sharp I agree. I found that my tuna tins opened cleanly and evenly with my tin opener and there were no sharp jags at all. But the pineapple tin (pictured above) actually drew blood. So I used the back of a spoon to press down a few of the nasty, wicked metal jags, then covered the inner edge completely with some pretty deco tape I had in the cupboard. I bought this tape ages ago from DotComGiftShop, and at 50p per roll it was a bargain. You can find it here, and there are other slightly more expensive designs to choose from too.
Talking of pretty deco tape, I had a little search for some on Etsy and OH. MY. GOODNESS.
I found WASHI TAPE.
How dreamy is this stuff???!!!!
Why did nobody think to tell me about Washi Tape before?????
Seriously, it is unbelievably gorgeous and desirable. DIViNe. Smoochable.
Oooooooooooooo♥ooooooooooo Washi Tape Mini Bunting, you are SO in my future.
