ANYTHING BUT A CARD WITH BUGABOO STAMPS


I upcycled a tin can!

Using the Bugaboo image, Autumn Sign, I coloured using alcohol markers and fussy cut it along the top.  

A strip of hessian/burlap was tied around the bottom and some fabric autumn leaves tied with a twine bow to hide the join at the back.
