RECYCLED TIN PEN HOLDER

Hi all , welcome back !! Am posting a tutorial on recycling a tin into a pen holder. Lets get started.



MATERIALS NEEDED:
  1. Foam sheets - red and black colour
  2. Old tin
  3. Pattern paper
  4. glue and scissors
PROCEDURE:


Take the black and white foam sheet and cut the shapes as shown in the above picture.


Assemble all the shapes to form the ladybug ( pic1) . Cover the tin with pattern paper and paste the ladybug at the bottom.  At the top add a sentiment of your choice . I recycled the salt tin in this project.


I use this as a brush holder. You can use it as a pen stand or a flower vase. This craft took me just half an hour to complete. Thus a simple, easy and attractive pen holder is made by recycling the tin.

Happy Crafting!!!
