Alter it - Transform a can.

Hi all

Wow we scared you off with the shrink plastic last week, was it a naff challenge or were you all so busy getting you Christmas things made?

Shrink plastic seems to have done the trick for Joan though who made a marvelous tag, so congratulations to

Number 1

you are the winner of the challenge this week do contact us if you would like a spot as a Guest Designer.

Now this week we are sponsored by our FABULOUS sponsors

Who have a £15 voucher for you to win and all you have to do is to have a go altering a tin.
Dont forget, the aim here is not to create a masterpiece, just to be brave enough to risk having fun doing something different and with such a fantastic prize, why hesitate?

So with a few ideas of how to go about it, here are the DT samples

And here's Michelle's tin
what part of Baked Bean tin did she not understand?? lol

Never mind! as she's altered a different tin let's go with it and say alter a tin - any tin, with no extra brownie points for bean tins!!!


Looks like Neil didn't read the small print either!

Have fun
