This is Sassfras altered can is my January design project for KCK. Their Challenge #5 is on until 28 February. Submit your Valentine or Chinese New Year project and you might be one of the winners walking away with S$30, S$50 or S$80 prize vouchers ! Two more weeks before Chinese New Year ! And my to-do list is pretty long : get my hair done, shop for reunion dinner ingredients, order red/yellow coxcomb plants (celosia) etc. And then, it'll be time for visiting family and friends. With mandarin oranges in hand as good-luck greeting items. To create a custom oranges-holder, I altered a waffle can. Using lots of bunnies on it to celebrate 2011 being the Year of the Rabbit.
Some Handtools required :Here are some 'making of' shots. Skip down to the next section if hand tools are not your thing. I drilled some handle holes, converted safety pins into bunny whiskers,. Then sanded, painted and 'glittered' up the alphas.
Now the Glamour Shots :
A closeup of the lid. You can just see the blue ribbon trim I treaded through the journal tag. and the row of fussy cut bunnies surrounding a layered chipboard flower.
And of the safety-pin whiskers on my bunnies with those sweet little flowers which serve to break up the cylindrical shape of the tin.
January 22, 2011
The alphas were sanded down in order to 'take' the gold acrylic paint. And a first for me - gold glitter flakes which seemed to add a touch of 'richness' for a Chinese New Year project.Wishing everyone who celebrates - a Prosperous and Happy Rabbit Year !
