After seeing Sara's tutorials on her Time for Crafting site I decided to have another play with metal and came up with this.
I have made this for the Lots To Do Challenge Blog this week - to make something out of recycled stuff.
You can't get more recycled than this! It is meant to look old and grungey.
It is made totally out of a tomato puree tube.
I opened it up, washed it, flattened it, and cut out some petal shapes. Then I used a bit of the tube that I hadn't roughed up - and glued it behind to make the blue petals, and bent the tube over at the back to totally enclose it. Punched hole with my Cropodile, added rivets to secure it and make it strong - and a bit of old flower arranging wire I found in my 'rubbish' when I was clearing out.
The 'seeds' I wrote backwards on the front of the tube with a biro, and then kept going over it - the gold is the inside of the tube - and I roughed that up with some sandpaper.
It is a label for my seed box!
