I have gone a bit box mad right now. After making the first two, I wanted to perfect the technique. Also, I had a week’s leave from work so I really wanted to make the most of the time off!
I altered some travel sweets tins (after removing the sweets – it’s a tough job, but someone has to do it!)
After that I went back to the Tim Holtz Alterations dies.
The pink gingham on this tin is actually a couple of cupcake cases (new ones!) that was part of a “pass the parcel” prize at my friend’s Jamie Oliver at Home party. I told her she should have done Particraft – I’d’ve paid her mortgage! – but having won the goody bag I felt compelled to do something crafty with it.
It’ll go to the bowling club as a raffle prize so hopefully someone’ll like it (I’ve filled it with strawberry bon bons!)
Another one that finished up looking very different from the way it started – it was much less grungy and antique!
(which began life as a tin full of extra-strong mints!).
I’m still playing – and I have a new toy, my Vagabond! I’m SOOO looking forward to using it/
