I am such a fan of baby milk tins and keep my flour and muesli in old ones from Georgia's baby days. I do feel guilty even recycling Bens ones but this one has been rescued from the great metal crusher in the sky and has been given the Tilda treatment!!
I covered it with Colorbok paper and cut out the adorable birdhouses from a Panduro collage sheet..The largest birdhouse is foam mounted and the smaller ones are flush with the tin. Pretty lace and ric-rac around the edges to make it extra girly.These colours are so easy to work with, why did I never clue onto this before? My pastel fear has turned into pastel fetish!!
I kept the lid red because if I had painted it the paint would have cracked with the constant opening of the lid and I like the touch of vava voom.
I used a variety of paper, net and Laura Ashley fabric circles to create the flower on top and a jumbo sized brad painted to match and secured through the lid.
The opposite side has foam letters saying My Hair Stuff and some large beautiful birds from the collage sheet. I am hoping it may inspire her to keep her hair accessories tidy!! Somehow I doubt it will happen though!!
Georgia now has two matching items for her room.....just one more to go...hmmmm what can I get my hands on next.......I feel a bird house coming on!!
