Kitty Cat Chic





I know that most of you share some
pretty amazing "morphs" on this
auspicious day...and me? Well, I
just have another mini-morph.
Tin can make-overs to be exact,
and since I am always the epitome
class with a capital "C"... they are
cat food cans (for some reason I
seem to have them in abundance! ;)





Just a bit of darling DENA paper and
my ever present seam binding...
and VOILA!





I had to try it on the little ones too!






I think they would make cute little votives!
MEOW~




FYI...wash the cans out WELL...under
the rim...take it from me, no amount
of perky pink paper and pretty ribbon
can make up for the smell of days old
Sauteed Pacific Salmon...really, it can't!



Hurry over to visit our hostess, Susan at
BETWEEN NAPS ON THE PORCH for more
METAMORPHOSIS MONDAY!!

  1. I love projects like these. They are simple to do, inexpensive and in a short amount of time can make quite an impact either on their own or in a pretty vignette. I love the papers you used.

    I enjoy your blog.

    Happy Monday,

  4. Great job, I too love small makeovers like this! I used the small pringle cans this past christmas. I simply covered them with christmas papers and used them to hold necklaces for my nieces. check it out here

  10. I like, I really like!!! But I wouldn't if they smelled. I got a kick out of your FYI about making sure the can is really clean. It made me laugh cause you know there would be at least one person who wouldn't wash the can completely & would be wondering "What is that smell?" Thanks for the laugh & the cute inspiration!!!
