Well, I’m at again! Here is another gift tin, altered to become a delicate and decorative keepsake box made for a loved one.
These types of altered tins are a lot of fun to make, as they will be used as homes for various trinkets and valuables! (This is probably as close to functionality in an altered tin as I get;)
So, while I have been making new and different tins as of late, I haven’t really stayed on top of posting them. But I will remedy that with a couple new gift tin posts – these are tins I made as gifts for people, sometimes upon request.
This altered Altoid tin is one inspired by a dear lady’s love of Las Vegas. And who doesn’t love Vegas?! (I know, we don’t all love it equally;)
Hope you enjoy!
Using paper containing text from Edgar Allen Poe’s iconic poem, I’ve layered the simple silhouette of a raven into resin to create this statement ring. It’s the perfect accessory on a rainy day…of which we’ve had many, as of late.
I do hope you enjoy!
It’s that time again: time to alter all the Altoid tins! Or at least a few of them. And I’ve been doing just that.
So to kick off this tin-altering season, I have for you my Edgar Allan Poe tin – with nods to at least four of his most notable works. Not an easy thing in such tight real estate! I hope you enjoy.
So, way back in 2011 I had a tentative plan for my version of the Sacred Heart of Jesus. Here is the completed version. Sorry it only took me three years!
