Altered Tin Can Project w/Lindsay's Stamp Stuff

This week I was feeling extra crafty! I decided to create a pencil holder using a soup can. This soup can is taller than most, so it was perfect for pencils. I just covered it with patterned paper using Fabri-tac glue. It is intended for fabric, but works great on this type of thing. I really like it because it is flexible for a minute or so after you put the paper on it. That way I can slide things around to get them just like I want, but it has a very firm hold once it dries.

Then I used the same glue to attach this wide lace around the center. I colored one of Lindsay's newest Doodle Flower stamps, the Fabric Flower. It is only $1.00 in her store. But you can buy the whole set which includes sentiments for $5.00.
Don't forget to stop by Lindsay's blog to get your weekly freebie and to check out the other projects from the Design Team!

Now for your Thursday freebie! I created this title for my husband's Marine Corps scrapbook a few days ago. If you know someone who is in the marines, this would be great to use. The word "Ball" is separate from the Marine Corps title. So if you don't want to include that word, you can remove it.

I have also created the titles you see below and have placed them in my store. If you'd like to purchase them, they are only $1.50 each, or you can buy the whole set for $3.00.

  1. Super super cute project! I love using my crafty things to make stuff that is useful and handy that someone will look at every day and use every day -- often better than a card that most people will just toss...
