I like how it gives a distressed look on the edges , I also used some chalk on the edges before I put the postcard on the can . I added different little embellishments , some were little rolled edge flora , very easy and quick to do
Stopped over at the Graphics Fairy the other day and saw this post ... Swoon is right ! I love old postcards ( found here), thanks so much Graphics Fairy for posting them !! So of course I had to print them off !! I printed two sizes on cardstock. I already had some tin cans waiting to be altered into something much better !! So I got various papers and treasures to embellish with. I distressed the edges of each postcard with my Zutter , makes it so quick & easy !
When I was all done with my cans I used a hammer and my trusty little awl to make clean holes on the sides and attached wire for handles. I also used some grungeboard on some of the tins , vintage papers, and various brads.
So I am linking with The Graphics Fairy today on brag Monday ! Hope you have a fabulous & creative day !!
