Upcycling challenge

A few weeks ago i agreed to take part in a challenge set by Lin.

All the participants were sent an envelope containing the same items and we were told that we had to use all of it but could add items from our own stash. We were also told the project had to be in just one shade of colour and we were provided with a list of colours to choose from, i am sure everyone expected me to choose pink for my projects but when i looked at the mediums i had i realised that brown was the colour that gave me most shades, i also knew that i wanted to use one of the projects for a Fathers Day gift.

Thanks for looking.


  1. Love what you've done with the little tin and the covering on the folder is very cool xo

  2. I had a funny feeling you wouldn't do pink Emma..your projects are great!!! so whats going in the folder?? and I am sure your dad is going to love his tin!!

    Thank you so much for taking part :D

  3. Love these Emma! Your folder is so pretty and I like how you used the zip pull and the bottle top. The tin for your Dad is a great idea and makes a fab change from a card.

  4. Fab makes Emma, I honestly thought you'd use pink or purple as you seem to be swaying more towards purple these days!!!

    Hope the 'dad' likes his lovely tin.
