Use packaging

If you follow Just for Fun, thank you, you might have seen our latest tutorial published on Monday about altered glue.    Thought it would be a good time to use the finished product on a project.

One of the current challenges at Gingersnaps is to use packaging.   This was a tub of biscuits that has been in my growing collection of things much to good to chuck and that will be re-purposed in due course.   Always in need of things to keep things in it was good fun to decorate this.

The yellow design on the tube was to nice to cover up so just the label painted over.   There is a full step by step guide on Craft-Room site so forgive me if I do not go into detail here.

  5. I wondered how you would use the altered glue, it is great to give some texture and dimension. Love your biscuit tub - you must have so many fabulous altered pieces around the house.
    Have a good day.
    luv and hugs {brenda} xoxox
