Graphic 45 Altered Canister for ABC Designs

Good Morning.  Well I've been busy in my craft cubbie coming up with some beautiful creations with Graphic 45. I just love all of their fact you should see there brand new paper packs that are just rolling out ...YUMMY! 

For Christmas my husband gave me a bottle of my favorite perfume and the container that it came in was just to good to throw away and last night it transformed into this beautiful canister.  I love the way it turned out.  ABC Design Blog is having a Design Team call and I thought this piece would be perfect to enter. 

To create a project similar to this one here are some general directions and links to ABC's store where you can have the supplies shipped directly to you:. 

Cover your base box/canister with Graphic 45 "Once Upon a Springtime" designer paper. Be sure to use a sturdy glue so it will really adhere. 

Use Spellbinders Label Seventeen to cut your front motif out.  Ink the edges with sponge daubers and glue together using EK Success 3D Dots to give that dimension and pop! Pierce a small hole in the bottom middle and add jump ring and pearl bauble to dangle and finish off with ribbon. 

For your top, cut various sized Blossoms from Spellbinders Daisy Heads.  Ink all the edges of the petal and cut in towards the center on some petals and curl with a pierce or other tool, or even between your fingers to give some interest to your layers.  Pierce the center with a hole and attach all the layers together staring with the largest layers on the bottom and working up.  I used a large pearl brad from Kaiser Kraft for the middle of my flower. 

Cut a thin strip of paper and create a loop/circle just a bit smaller than the cap of your canister.  Adhere various sized pearls around the rim for a jeweled look. Glue to the top along with your flower. 

Finish off with ribbon and before you know it you have a beautiful gift.
