Introducing the new Dovecraft value pads

Happy Easter everyone

Today i am blogging about the new Dovecraft Value paper pads which i have used to make these pen organizers. They come in for designs which are Leyton, Crowning Affair, Bloom and Grow and More or less. You can view more about them here

you will need a few empty tins that have been washed and dried, soak off the labels with soapy water. once dry paint the tins with Americana Chalky Finish paint and leave to dry.

I used the 12 x 12 sized paper packs and cut 10 cm wide strips of paper and wound them around the tins to cover them or you can cut thinner strips to show more of the paint work if you wanted a rustic look.

These tins look great when decorated with a variety of different trims.  I rubbed paint over a wooden embellishment so that i would get a weathered look and then i threaded twine through it and tied it around the tin. I kept everything in place with hot glue.

I use various sized paper blossoms to create the central feature. I just layered them together and finished with a resin flowers.

Thanks for looking
