It Has Bean A While!

ASproject1a0909

Honest! It has! My last Bean can was about 20 something posts back ... that is at least 3 weeks I reckon!

This particular bean tin has been decorated with Artistic Stamper Dots, Hounds tooth, Distressed, and gingham background... the flowers are from the Flower Power sheet and the whole design is grunge paper coloured with Brushed Corduroy Distress ink and embellished with, the man that could craft while stood on his head with his hands tied behind his back ... The Lord Tim's Idea-ologyASproject10909 bits!

Why does she keep altering bean tins I hear you ask? ... Well ... they are very useful ... I keep finding stuff to put in them ... and they are very cheap ... is the answer to that one!

Usually I would use my Crop-A-Dile to join the paper around the tin but my mate Andrea came up with the very clever idea of using my Bind-it-all ... so I did ... and it worked ... and it is a lot quicker too!

It has bean lovely :0) Ketchup with you later :0)
