A Fresh Start

June 8, 2007 - 5:11pm

When I first created this site I intended for it to be just for tutorials. But as time has gone on, I am going to utilize it for other things as well. I want to put more of my cards I make on a daily basis as well as projects I do for myself and friends on here. I thought I could turn this into more of a craft blog. Please bear with me as I work out the kinks getting this to where I want it. I hope you will enjoy what I create and come back for more. Thanks for visiting.

Pop Top Can

Difficulty: Difficulty 2/5 (2/5)

Never throw away another pop top can. You can reuse them, decorate them and give them as gifts. I like to use the small cans fruit come in. Maybe this is a good excuse to start eating more fruit...to make decorated pop top cans!
