I am loving G45's new DIY Craft Paper! It is perfect for your home projects because it is a big sheet of paper and wraps all the way around without having to piece your paper. Yay! If I am not scrapping, I am cooking, so it's a natural that I create things for the kitchen. To celebrate Earth Day I created a kitchen utensil holder from a used Pepperidge Farms Pirouette cookie tin in my favorite color, red.
This would make a great gift for a wedding shower; just add a few kitchen utensils and, voilà, a beautiful handmade gift.
Tip: Use matte medium to protect, and strengthen your handmade items that you'll be using everyday. And for those fabric flowers? Just spray them with a little Staingard.
I used a combination of fussy cut paper flowers and Petaloo Botanica blooms to embellish my tin.
Take a look at my Snapguide to see how easy this project is. You can do this in just a couple of hours.
