Decorated Crafty Bin with Tammy Tutterow

I love fun little bins to that I can use in my crafty space to organize my supplies while looking super cute!  This fun little wodden bin was a post-holiday clearance aisle find at Hobby Lobby.  It was bright orange and all about Halloween.
With a quick re-cover with sunny yellow paper from Glitz Design's Hoopla collection, I have a fun little cheery bin for only a few dollars.
I did a simple re-cover of the outside with the cheery yellow polka-dot side of Polka.  I recovered the inside with the white side of Zebra.  I decoupaged the paper onto the bin using Claudine Hellmuth Studio Multi Medium.  Once the medium was dry, I sanded the edges and brushed on Vintage Photo Distress Ink.
After I replaced the ribbon bow that came on the box, I added a fun label to the front.  Because the box was originally orange, I also recovered the bottom of the box with a scrap of Frames.
I adhered a cardstock Journaling sticker to a scap piece of paper.  I cut around the sticker leaving a very small border of paper.  I added Vintage Photo Distress Ink to the edges.  I added four round Glitzers stickers to the label and then layered white foam Thickers stickers on top to spell out "stuff".  I used Green Alpha Teeny Alpha Stickers to add the work "fun".  I used Adhesive Foam Sqaures to adhered the label to the front of the box.
The make-over took only about an hour, most of which was just decoupage drying time.  It was certainly a fast bargain make-over that adds a fun and sunny little catch-all to my space.
