my creative space - tin cans............

It's time for my link up with Kirsty, my creative space project this week is all about tin cans. I seem to have a recycling bee in my bonnet at the moment and after filling my house with jam jars wrapped in cosy crochet cosies I have moved onto tin cans.

With new can openers you are left with a very safe edge so no risk of nasty cuts and the tins can be used for all sorts of things. I have washed mine, taken off the labels and then covered in masking tape. Then I have decorated them with washi tape in a variety of different colours, and widths - so lovely.

Until recently I hadn't experienced the delights of washi tape, Kate introduced me to it and added a few rolls with my birthday present - I'm now hooked and want to add more colours and designs to my small collection

This looks an amazing collection - just been added to my wish list .............

I've just found a pinterest page full of project lovely. Don't forget to pop over to Kirsty's page for a bit of inspiration.

Talk soon x


  1. I really need to get me some washi tape! And I want a collection like that one there!!! Off to look at your Pinterest now.....

  2. Hello Sue, this is Anne from Ungardened Moments and thank you for leaving a lovely encouraging comment on my blog.
    I love your blog and look what fabulous things you've done with those tin cans. Gorgeous. I haven't worked with washi tape before, it does look very interesting.
    Have a wonderful weekend,
    Anne xx

  3. I love washi tape. Great idea to decorate tin cans. I have made glass jars into pretty jars with my tapes, and decorated a journal.

  4. I'm a washi tape collector too. there are so many pretty designs out there.
    lovely little projects for using it.


Thank you so much for taking the time to leave me a comment.
