The lessons are divided into smaller segments so you can easily find topics.  I recommend that you watch the lessons in numerical order so you can see the project from start to finish. Of course, you can always go back and watch them over as many times as you need to in order to grasp the skill being demonstrated. The time it will take to watch each video varies from lesson to lesson, and is shown in parenthesis () after each video link.

It is recommended that you let the video load completely in the browser window before you attempt to play it.  Be patient, this may take a few minutes.  It will depend on the speed of your computer and the speed of your internet connection.

A border can be used instead of the lettering.  The lettering acts as our border.  You can finish the tin by adding the color on the edges of the tin if you like.  It is a nice finishing touch.  You can leave or add as many steps to these projects as you want.  It depends on the amount of time you want to put into the project.  Remember that crafters often have to leave off steps to make it practical to sell.  Pick and choose wisely and you will be happier with your efforts.  Make your time count and you will love the results.

Hope you have fun…
