And Now for Something Totally Christmas

Well, I'm finally back in the blogosphere, here today to share some altered tins.  I am enjoying doing more 3D work, and I hope to get into doing some more.

This is the first one--

This is an emptied Tazo Tea tin from Starbucks.  I covered it with some Christmas Papers by Heidi Swapp that I picked up at Michael's after the holidays. 

I love the large scale chalkboard label, and I was given the idea to do the little banner by the strip of paper that was there to help seal the tin. 

Another view--

I really love the graphics of these papers.  I could do this stuff all day long!

The second one--

Same paper pad, same idea.  This was a tin that held cookies from Williams-Sonoma, so I had the little stripes at the top and bottom to help me along already.  I used a Papertrey Ink die cut border on this one (the lacy black piece), and mirrored the top tab idea from the tea tin. 

Another view of that one--

Great papers, right?  Love them!

I am now on the lookout for some great cheap (read free) tins.  This stuff is FUN!

Well, that's all I've got for now!

Thanks for stopping by!
All Best-
