Embossed Foil Back Tape Upcycled Rose Canister

Skip the craft store and get the makings of this project at the hardware, grocery, and second hand store! Seriously! This canister was your typical metal cookie container that got fancied up quite a bit. Don't believe me?

The foil tape was embossed with a new rose embossing folder from Close to My Heart. Due to the size of the embossing folder & tape, you end up making strips, so you pretty much have to piece it together until your entire tin is covered.

I used alcohol inks to get the mottled look combined with some rubbing alcohol. THE MAN says it looks like stained glass. 

A lot of these flowers & even the butterfly came from the second hand store! I'm always on the look out as usually people donate odds & ends and it doesn't take a lot to make something pretty. 

The fun part is that every single side of this container are different! Some of them have more red and others more of that turquoise color I love...I'm on a RAK kick, so it's possible this one will head out to be hidden locally for someone to find as a random surprise! 

Happy Tuesday!
