Sue's yeast tin


A couple of weeks ago when some of us from Tanda forum meet at Stamp Attic we all had lots of goodies for each other and a couple of challenges. Sue gave each of us an empty yeast pot to alter. Sue makes lots of wonderful things many are shared on her blog which is well worth a visit, Sue also makes her own bread hence the yeast pots for all of us!

This is what has happened to the yeast tin that Sue gave me to alter. Fibre wrapped round the barrel first layer close and tight, second chunky thread loosely in a spiral. Mother of pearl effect flower shaped buttons stitched on. Felt flowers cut in big shot (TH die) green large one stuck to lid pink ones held together with brad and then attached on top, More pink and green flowers stuck to the sides. And there it sat for days until the dragonfly flew up and onto the side. Dragonfly is a friendly plastic one left over from the canvas below.
