This weeks challenge over at There's Magic In The Air is to make anything BUT a card. I chose to alter this little tin I got out of the dollar bin at Target. It was like a little lunch box that had Boston Baked Beans Candy in it and I bought a few when I bought it. These measure about 4 x 2 3/4 inches, so they are not really very big. I thought I would use this to place a gift card in with some small candies.
The color of the tin was mostly a chocolate brown. So I left the brown on the small edges and then painted the tin inside the edges a lagoon color with Making Memories paint. I wanted to keep it fairly simple and so I went with the glitter stack paper from DCWV . I used my Bic Mark-its to color the image and used a light blue color pencil to add some shadowing on my snowman on the white. I placed him on pop dots too. I then added ribbons to match and I also had these big jingle bells so I thought a red one would be super cute so I added that to one side of the handle with all the ribbons and added the little element that said joy and called it complete. My only regret is that I only bought 3 of these little tins for a $1.00!! I wish I would have bought about 10 now!
There's a really pretty shear ribbon that is the color of the sky background in the glitter paper, but because it is shear it did not photograph the color very well at all, but in real life you can really see the ice blue in the ribbon line and the ribbons are also soo much prettier in real life as well.
I just noticed I didn't make his little cheek rosie!
