Mix-it-Up Monday!!!!

Hi everyone...
I wanted to show you a cool way to mix up our gorgeous papers and embellies.

Look at my cute Band-Aid tin:


I took an old tin, sanded it down (so the acrylic paint would go on better), waited for it to dry, and had a LOT of fun with my Upsy Daisy goodies :)

I trimmed, modge-podged and sanded and filed my way around this tin, reaching for my favourite UD papers all the time.

Can you guess how many lines I used?

I used "Unwritten - Poetry", "Spirit - Love", "Hot Chocolate - Wintergreen" and "Hot Chocolate - Cinnamon Stick".

I embellished the tin with some leftover trim and UD Rub-ons "Basic Black Alphas" and "Sweet Slumber Boy".

Of course I had to use up a lurverly new brad from our "Man about Town" line. I used it to mimic an "O" in the word "ouch"...

I finally sanded down the handle and the bottom edges of the tin so as to give it a battered-up, worn-out look...kinda how one feels after taking a nasty spill and needing a Band-Aid ;)

***warning*** If you do decide to mix-it-up and create a tin like this, your little people will be searching for Band-Aids about 5 times a day....lol

Happy week everyone :):)
