On a recent snowy day, I cleaned out some kitchen cupboards and found this old cupcake tin. Thinking of this challenge, I knew I wanted to alter it. When the weather cleared, I made a trip to Hobby Lobby and bought some cream spray paint. Four coats later, and my old cupcake tin was lookin' shiny and new. I then used my most favorite embellies to make it into a piece of wall art - heidi swapp chip hearts and some jillibean soup buttons, tied w/DMC. Love!! The little 7Gypsies chip pieces were made into magnets using a For the Luv of Art stamp, Unity cupcake stamp, some Martha Stewart gold micro beads, machine stitching and a button tied w/DMC. To finish, I looped some Strano ribbon through the top of the tin.
I really love how this project turned out. I have it hanging above my kitchen sink and it looks so cute! My man/son Thomas asked me when I got home from work the other day..."hey, mom...how 'bout some lovin' from the oven?" He cracks me up!!! :)
Check it out!!!
