"Tranquility" Trinket Box/ Altered Pringles Can
Hello Crafty Friends! Jeanne back this week with my last project of this month and a tutorial on how I created this Trinket Box using a Pringles can. I first made this project 8 years ago when I started crafting and I really enjoyed making something beautiful from something recyclable. I used this month's Scrapbook Kit to create this project.
I began by washing the Pringles can with just a little bit of dish soap and a little water, not soaking it in water, then rinse and dry quickly. Next I measured the can at 6 inches all around and marking it using a marker. Next I used an Xacto knife to cut around it where I made the marks. When finished I cleaned up the edges using scissors.
I then took some heavy weight card stock and traced the can then cutting them out. Next I adhered those circles onto the pattern paper that I would be using as the sides of my box. *I ended up using a different pattern paper in the end result
Now I had to cut the opening so for this I traced a line using a ruler then cutting it using my Xacto knife. Once I did that I took my ruler again and and my score tool and made a score line as seen on the 3rd photo below. I then took some Liquitex white gesso and a sponge brush and covered the inside of the can, once that dried I then went over it using Folk Art "Ballet Pink" Matte Acrylic Paint.
I now chose a sheet from the "Tranquility" collection from the Scrapbook Kit and cut it at 6 x 7 and I then rolled it and held it using some clips just to get the paper use to the circular shape. I left it like this for a night. Next I adhered it using Aleene's Tacky Glue and then making sure I measured it correctly.
Once it dried, I began adding the closure hardware, next I measured and penciled in where I would be placing the beads I would be using as the feet for this box. I then adhered them using hot glue.
Next I began adding my laces and embellishments. On the lid I used laces from Lavish Laces I received as a gift. On the the bottom part where the lid locks, I used a piece of the laser elements. I also used some of the flowers and other designs from the elements package. I also used flowers from 49 and Market and Prima marketing. On the back part of the box, I used a larger applique' piece from my stash. Then I added some splatters of Lindys Stamp gang Glitz Magicals "Gleaming Gold", which is one of my favorite new product colors! This is included in this month's Mixed Media Kit.
Lastly I added a piece of hand dyed fabric using Beacons Fabri Tac to the inside then adhering a braided trim as well.
I hope that my step by step instructions are easy to follow, if you have any questions you can message me on my social media. I really enjoyed creating this for you this month and I hope you will give it a try. These were a popular project to create back then so I thought I would bring this back.
