Altered Pringles lid


I was just about to throw this Pringles lid away, when I thought surely I can use this for something! Well, it turns out I could, and did!

First I cut out a circle of stiff paper and then stamped the watch onto it. I then slotted this into the lid - it didn't need any glue as the grooves held it in place. I applied a dark alcohol ink around the edges of the lid to remove the whiteness. I made the flower from Grunge Paper and stuck on the embellishments (mostly Tim Holtz) with Glossy Acccents.

I am now very glad I didn't throw that lid away!
