I have an altered project for you today.  I'm not very practiced in these type of projects so I'm never sure if it's enough or too sparse.  Let me know how I did, I love the feedback.
This started out as a fish flakes can.  We have 3 huge gold fish who eat a lot! So we buy the big cans. lol
It's nice and sturdy so I thought why not try it!
 I'm a huge fan of the fabric covered buttons and needed a bigger storage container for them, I think this will be perfect!  I added a few hand fulls to my picture to entice you further.  All so pretty!!
I painted the can with gesso, then glued on the polka dot paper. The cute hexagons are a new stamp set from Unity. I'm so hooked on those stamps it's crazy! Aren't they fun?  So many options of uses for these! On the lid I traced the size onto the back of the paper and cut it out then glued it in place.  I added a cute ribbon (love gingham) and one of the new FCB in the black, such a cute match I think!
I hope you will give me your opinion on how I did.  Have fun and don't forget there's one more stop then come back tomorrow for more!!
Next up is the very talented Napur!!

Now, if you find yourself Hopping off the Path on any of the three days, you can use this Lineup to get back on the Right Track . . .

DAY 1 (12/13/13):


DAY 2 (12/14/13):
