A Thing of Beauty...Core'Dinations, Xyron and Petaloo Week

Hello again, fellow Core lovers! It's Gini, and today I have an upcycling project to share with you, using some of my favorite products. With a little help from Core'dinations, Xyron and Petaloo, I was able to transform a lowly Pringles Chip container into a dispenser for cosmetic cotton rounds.

 A Thing of Beauty Supply List


Step 1. Measure around your container and cut paper to fit.  
Step 2. Draw a template for your opening on scrap cardstock. Cut in the center of the paper as well as the canister.

Step 3. Stamp decorative border at the top and bottom of the paper with watermark ink. Heat emboss with gold powder. Tip: Sometimes metallic embossing powders leave a residue. Use the Dust Buddy after embossing to remove this powder.
  Step 4. Run the paper through the Creative Station machine to apply adhesive. Carefully adhere to the canister, lining up the openings.
 Step 5. Ink the back of the vellum quote with metallic gold. Die cut a frame using the Glitter Silk cardstock.

  Step 6. Use the small tape runner to apply adhesive to the back of the frame. Center quote and trim the excess.
  Step 7. Cut a circle to match the top of the canister. Add trim around the top and bottom of the canister and lid to hide the raw edges.
 Step 8. Spritz the flowers with gold and let dry.
 Step 9. Add the embellishments to the canister to finish as shown.
So remember, look at your empty containers with a creative eye, before you take out your trash! See you soon.
