Couture Creations DIY Baroque Plant Tin

Every so often we rediscover something that we have and really have never used to its full potential. This happened while looking for a die-cut to use on a project, and so came to be this recycled tin. It can really be used for anything from a plant container, to storing pens, small trinkets etc.

But here’s how I created this beautiful luxurious look using a single die cut and some other items.

 

  • Step 1

    Die-cut the Vallicola die out of white smooth cardstock. I needed 5 to run around the rim of my tin.

  • Step 2

    Colour the die-cuts using Bloom mist in the colour Gold Foil. This is the most amazing colour and really looks spectacular.

  • Step 3

    Adhere the die-cuts to the painted tin using 3D Matte Gel. I used the gel because of its 3D qualities. I knew that it would create some texture around the die-cuts as it build up and that was perfect for this project.

  • Step 4

    Once the gel is dry, add a layer of dark wax using a stipple brush. Buff it using an old t-shirt.

  • Step 5

    Add a layer of clear wax using the t-shirt and then buff it to a shine. It will make the surface really smooth and give it a luxurious touch.

And so I created this beautiful tin with a lovely die-cut paper band around it. Once the wax settled, I finished it off with a few red diamanté just for that added sparkling effect. So even if you have a single die cut, remember that repetition is one of the key design principles, and can even help create a stunning effect by repeating a single patterned several times.
