Elegant lace, beautiful ribbon, pretty fabric and buttons...what could be more delightful to incorporate into a craft project...?
I love storing my crafty treasures in beautiful containers, and these fabric covered tins are not only really simple to make, but they are also lovely because they use supplies that are almost always on hand...
I thought I would share how I made them with with you...just in case you felt inclined to add a touch of creative flair to your craft room or any other room in the house!
Begin by selecting your fabric, ribbons and/or lace... If you would like to add buttons or fabric flowers, you can choose your favourites now...
You will also need a clean, empty tin.
Measure how wide and how long you need to make your piece of fabric.
You will need to add a little extra length and width so that you can fold over the raw edges for a neat finish.
I added about an inch to my measurements...
Now fold and press a seam on the top, bottom and one side of the fabric.
Apply fabric glue to the top and bottom edge of the tin and stick the fabric on, securing the raw edge first and then rolling up...
Cover the raw edge with the neat seam you pressed and apply a good amount of fabric glue to secure. Allow to dry.
This is the back of your tin.
Now you can add your lace and ribbon!
Apply fabric glue to the top edge of the tin and wrap the lace around the tin, making sure the two edges meet at the back of the tin so that it looks neat.
Secure the ribbon, if you are using, in the same way.
Use craft glue to secure buttons or fabric flowers to the tin, if you so desire...
...And you are done!
These pretty fabric covered tins would make lovely gifts and look especially charming when grouped with other tins covered in coordinating fabrics!
Wishing you a wonderfully blessed week, dearest readers and thank you so much to each of you for your kind and gracious comments...it always blesses me to hear from you!
