Altered Tin

Hello again! I know you never see a post from me on a Friday! However with Stamp, Scrap and Doodle Saturdays taking a bit of a rest, I didn't want you guys to be missing my lovely face! Hahaha!

Ok, so I participated in the blog hop over at Moving Along With the Times yesterday, and I came up with a project to go with the challenge! The challenge was anything but a card, and I had been looking for something to do with a tin that I had hanging around.

Here is the before picture:

And here is the after:

Quite a difference huh? I made this for a special two year old whose birthday is coming up. I figure she can put her colored pencils or crayons in it when she crafts! Ha Ha! I'm trying to corrupt her early! :)

I'm afraid I don't have any names to give you for the products I used. All of this came from my neglected stash. It kind of stinks, because I'd really like to know the name of this paper! I love it!

I also entered the tin into:

Cute Card Thursday - Reuse, Renew, Recycle
Meljen's Designs - Bookmark or a Tag

Have a great weekend!

  2. Hi Kendra, This is just perfect for a little one, she will make good use of it I am sure and probably with more than her coloured pencils. You have done a good job of altering the tin and making it look competely different.
