Alter a Tin

I am really enjoying entering a few challenges. It is great to see what other people come up with. There is an amazing amount of talent out there. 
My offering for this challenge http://tuesdaytaggers.blogspot.com/ is a Woodware "Scrapbook in a Tin". It is covered with scrapbook papers (Basic Grey - Origins), stamped and of course I had to add a little bird. The bird is from a sheet of die cut birds by Magenta. I really like these as they are really precision cut. I have inked up the bird with chalk inks and then triple embossed it with clear powder.

These make nice gifts for friends. The tin includes a little accordian book that can be decorated to make a special card. But this particular tin was just perfect to store a set of Crafty Individuals stamps. One of these days I will decorate the tin to match the contents!! But this tin was handy and will do for now!


  1. Love your altered tin Siobhan, so many details to look at. Thankyou for joining in with us at TioT's this week. Yvonne xx

  2. Beautiful tin. Great colours and I like the idea to use for stamp storage! Thanks for joining us at Try it on Tuesday.


Thank you for taking the time to comment. I really appreciate them.
