Christmas In A Sardine Tin

Who is up for Christmas in a Sardine tin? Yep, I’ve been altering sardine tins again, I just can’t help myself! Well I did make David eat quite a few so I have some empty tins stacked up ready to use. 

For this one I fancied seeing if I could cram Christmas into my tin using the Red, Green and Yellow Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft®
Mix and Match colour sets. So it is quite a traditional Christmas!

I’ve done a little bit of stamping on fabric and used some of my collaged card too. 

But you can find out more from the step by step on the Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft® blog if you fancy finding out how I got Christmas into this tin.

Thanks for dropping in.

    I love sardines and I love your tin – but how do you get rid of the fishy odour? X

    I altered two sardine tins after seeing yours. Thanks for the inspiration.
