Tins for SECET
















Each year I attend (actually help make scones) for an open garden day at Abbeywood in the Fields, just North of Berry, to raise money for SECET - Shoalhaven Employers of Christian Education Teachers - who put scripture teachers in our local High Schools.
This year I have decided to alter some Illy coffee tins to donate for sale.
I have been working on these for a few months now (on & off) and now have about 15 (some still to be decorated) to sell. Here's a pic of the completed ones.

wow, miss nance!
I really like them. What a good idea! (and good taste as well, once I tried that coffee and liked it:D)
Did you use paper to cover them? how did you put them on? (decoupage or something more tricky??)
Grats again, I like the colours and their harmony as well!

It is paper, I adhered it with mod podge and sealed it once it as dry with mod podge also.
