a craft easy, useful and cheap!

Last week I went to a clothing store (Sfera, you know?) to buy pants.
My surprise was seeing a display full of scrapbooking material type.
There were stickers, notebooks, erasers, drilling machines, lots of things!
I could not resist to purchase tapes!
They are manufactured in China, not Japan like washi tape,
but I liked so much  the drawings printed!

In each package there were 5 tapes and the price was € 2.5. 
I thought it would a good afternoon fun for work. 
That Is really a tin can of powdered milk of my baby. 
I have many cans milk powder that I saved for made 
a cover of crochet or made a cover with decorative tape!

That was fun finding these tapes in a clothing store!
I was happier for the acquisition of adhesive tapes than for the purchase of two pants,
although a long time since I had bought pants .... !

I love the apple logo with tape. Also the colors. And the houses ... 
well, and the circles with black background ... well, I like all!

I select some tapes to cover the can...

Given that the can has some prints and some tapes are trasparents,
I look for a solution...

In  first I hooked the tapes on a white cardboard...

Remember to take good measures of cardboard with the can,  
you can always cut if exceeds of cardboard , not the reverse ...

Here's a colorful tin. One can of powdered recycled!

A craft  easy, useful and cheap!

Always we need places to saved little things, right?
I have so many cans and glass jars saved waiting their turn to be recycled ...
In short, I have no time...!

I feel happy when I can give a second life useful  things ...

The blog has surpassed 100 followers... 100 followers...
I think that is something really incredible ... incredible...
