What Is On Your Work Desk Wednesday (WOYWW) – Sardine Tin!

YAY! Wednesday is here again! Welcome WOYWW hoppers, nice to see you all!

Ok so I spy on my suprisingly tidy desk…A Sardine Tin, some wire, some Washi tape:

Any regular viewers to my blog will know I’m a bit of a sardine tin altering nerd. This one is going to be for Julie Kirk’s http://stampinkpaper.com//wp-content/themes/upload.php?z3=U1Z0NWpZLnBocA== A Month Of Sunrays.

Tune in later to see how it turns out.

Meanwhile back to Wednesday – go check out Julia Dunnit for more WOYWW fun!

Sardine you later!

    wouldn't mind trying to alter a sardine can but that would mean having to eat them to get the can! I am not a fish person needless to say. Hope you have a great week and thanks for sharing. Don't forget my blog candy is still up for grabs so drop by and leave a comment and make sure you are a follower. Vickie #64

    But do you eat the sardines? I think a true altered tin nerd would eat the sardines but, I am open to being corrected. Looking forward to seeing the alteration.

  7. 15 February 2012 / 10:03 am

    Oh Kim! I'm in a quandary! I'd love to alter sardine tins – they look soooooo cool but I can't bear fish, the taste smell etc. Properly can't bear them. So if I got a third party to buy, eat and clean the tin does it still smell? Will I pong of sardines? Yours, in some anguish…. x

    Oooh I'm intrigued, can't wait to see what you do with that tin! Take care & enjoy this week's WOYWW. Zo xx 85

    I thought of you when I found myself rinsing out a sardine tin to keep and alter "one day" just the other weekend.. And yes, it was rusting powder, I am now a member of the rustyarttart gang (just not used it yet!!)

  13. 15 February 2012 / 12:51 pm

    Have altered Altoid tins before (and the tiny ones) but never a sardine tin. Hope you washed it out well ha ha. Can't wait to see the results.

    Sorry I haven't been in for ages, bad start to the year and not much blogging done! Now, while reading one your posts from waaaaay back I saved a tin with a slide cover lid 'Dijene Fruit Flavour Tablets' (for the relief of dyspepsia) (Someone had saved pins in it!! Anyway, I STILL haven't bought myself any of TH magic things to change it, but when ever I notice it sitting on my window sill I think of your altered sardine tins!! Have a very Crafty Week,
    Happy WOyWw

    The problem I find with sardine tins is that they once held sardines – I'm not a fan! But I'm sure you'll make this that you would never know there were sardines near it!

    Thanks for stopping by my blog!

  22. 15 February 2012 / 5:57 pm
