Upcycled Formula Tin - Flying Unicorn

Here is a little inspiration project I created for the 'trash to treasure' mid month challenge at Flying Unicorn. Challenge is running from 15th June - 15th July. 

From my recycling bin I pulled out a baby formula tin. For months I have been looking at these tins and thinking 'I really should do something with them'. Thank you for the fantastic kick start Tammy (again I must tell you that your project is amazing!!). I feel like I took an easy option by choosing the obvious tin to recycle, none the less.....

I turned this.....

I cut the huge flower out on my Cricut machine and then carefully pieced all 30 petals together. I gave nearly everything a smidge of rub'n buff and distress ink. I think this gorgeous Bo Bunny paper complemented my formula tin rather perfectly ;-).
