My kitties and I love tuna and so I buy a lot
of this cans, I used to throw them away
until I started to change my mind...
There is no trash, only possibilities!
Cans are resistant and I love rounded shapes
so I have been thinking about what to do with
them while I was saving them and I realize my kitties
eat a lot! Lol!
Tuna cans can be smelly so I leave them on a bucket
with soap overnight and then I leave them air dry, this helps
to remove the smell!
I used felt for "dressing" them, this fabric
is great for it stays the same way after cutting it so
it`s perfect for this project!
The patterns fo cutting the fabrics come from the
inside and bottom circle meassurments and from
the sides, inside and out, saving patterns is useful for
making more in the future!
After making some small cans I went for larger ones
with the same steps shown on the video below
and made some for the holidays, they
can be filled with gifts, cookies or anything you can
think of and they can be hanged on the tree if you
attach a wire like I did with these!
This are made with beautiful natural fabrics
some are dyed with soft colors that combine!
One of my favorites is the cheese cloth wich
looks fantastic after dyed!
The details are important to make this even more
interesting and beautiful!
This is a great project for showing someone you
Love them and you will be giving the message of
recycling as well!
This is only one idea of many things we can do with
our used cans!
Here is the video to learn how to make them!
It`s up to each one of us to:
make our minds creative,
make our world better,
make some one else happy with our
doings in this world...
are you up to re-porpusing what`s around you?
Make Happy! :D
