Cuttlebug Be Inspired #41

Yippee! I love the Cuttlebug Challenge this week! It is altered items from recycled items. I think I've mentioned numerous times how much I like altering. So much fun!

My husband will bring home unused quart-size paint cans for me every now and again that they are going to throw out (one of the perks of being married to an auto body painter). I've got them stacking up, so here was a perfect opportunity. I simply clean it out really good and went to decorating.

This fun paper is from a K & Company pad. Oh, it's so cute! I took a piece that has a movie theater theme. By the way, this project only took one sheet of paper! I cut some circle with my nesties. I ran the one through the Cuttlebug in the Swiss Dots folder right away. That ended up on the top of the can. I stamped the other three before running them through the Cuttlebug. The tickets were a part of the paper that I cut out and stamped. I popped up the front tags with some dots to give the can dimension. A little ribbon and a doorknob on top finished off the can.

We went to Target tonight and my husband bought peanuts to fill the can. I am quite certain this will sit on his table by his chair!
