Mary's Trash To Treasure

Can you guess what this was made out of? Well let me show you how you can turn ordinary trash into beautiful treasure.Today I am going to show you how to create this Cake Gift Tin out of things you might already have around the house.

To start I used a 4 oz. can green chili can, frozen orange juice lid, Cuttlebug dots embossing folder,  Spellbinders Eyelet Circle die # 5, Standard Circles LG die # 4 & 5, Prima Pink Roses, white & pink cardstock.

First remove the lid from the frozen orange juice and label from the green chili can.  Wash. 
To make pattern for can, wrap cardstock around can.  Hold.  Trace top and bottom edge with pencil.  Mark for length.  Cut bottom edge.  On top edge, cut 1/8” above traced line.  (This allows for lid to fit on top).  Copy onto cardboard for permanent pattern.

       Emboss cutout.  Flip around and line up last row of dots.  Emboss again.

Cut two Standard Circles die #5. One from die #4. All from white cardstock.
Cut two Eyelet Circle die # 3 from pink cardstock.
Emboss smallest circle with Cuttlebug dots.
Adhere one large white circle to the bottom of pick Eyelet circle. Repeat.
Add small dot white circle to one layered circle. Adhere to flat side of frozen orange juice lid.
