Altered Art ...

Hi Everybody,

As we all know Christmas is on the way and if you are like me then you will be buying the little lovelies in a round tub.

I am sure that you all know what I mean and I find I develop a real addiction to Pringles every year.

So what do you do with the tubes when you have eaten them all ???? Throw them away ???

Oh not this year ... keep them and decorate them as storage for lots of different items.

The video tutorial is easy to follow and you will love these once they are completed ... after you have enjoyed the contents of course !!!

I have added Wild Orchid Flowers   to mine  along with some glitter to make them sparkle.

And all the pearl flourishes are from Want2Srap   You can use any Spellbinders that you have in your crafting "Stash"  just have some fun as you make these for your self and your friends

More tomorrow ...



  1. Brilliant way to recycle a Pringles tub-looks great.

    Hope you are over your jet lag? What a great idea to use the empty can, they look lovely.

  6. Hi Christina, these are so beautiful! I don't eat Pringles but I do have a LOT of empty dried milk and drinking chocolate tubs just waiting for a I know just what I can do with them. Thanks so much for the fun video tutorial, you always manage to make everything look so easy :). x

  8. Welcome home Christina, I hope you had a wonderful time an taught them a thing or two on how to use their dies Lol. Rest up cos jet lag is always worst from west to east.

  10. What a fantastic idea, guess what I will be doing with those empty tubes!!! Thanks a million Christina, they look stunning....could make a lovely pressie with something inside....That video is just great....luv Ursula xx

  11. Great use of these turned them into something pretty.
    Well done Christina

  12. Wouldn't have picked it as a chip container! You can't help yourself, creating is in your blood, and you don't need much sleep after a long haul flight either ;) xx

  13. Oh that's so pretty Christina! I'm glad you had a wonderful time away!

  14. Welcome home Christina and i am glad that you had a ball on your inaugural trip to Arizona. The country looks so beautiful and i could have had a ball in that Joanne's shop (fair jealous). Back to reality and work,
    Love and crafty hugs

  15. What a very clever idea thank you I shall try this, I don't like Pringles but there is someone else in our home who does so not a problem!

  16. So creative you are this is stunning x

  17. Very cool. I get those crisps (chips to us) all the time. I even have the same Spellbinder dies. thanks for the great tutorial.

  18. so pretty and a great way to dress up a can for gift giving!

  19. I just love the way you decorated your containers. I have been collecting very sturdy tubes from paper towels (some are great quality), Tin foil, Wax paper and clear rap. My thoughts are to decorate them and connect them as one design. This would be great for a decoration or to store Knitting needles, rulers, long paint brushes, etc. Thank for sharing. You have given me a lot of inspiration for my project. Hugs Lori

  20. Gorgeous container! I would not have ever thought to decorate a Pringles can! What a fun idea and I can think of a lot of things to tuck inside now. I definitely need to go raid the grocery store shelf, lol!
