Funky Fairy Challenge





This weeks challenge is as follows
In with the OLD
Out with the new
Create an Item
That's just for YOU
Go through your stash
That you've had packed away
And fetch out those Goodies
To have a little play! :)


I decided to finally alter an old teabag tin to store my bits & bobs in. I covered the tin in my gorgeous Rustic Gem papers then stamped images from Clear Art Stamps randomly around the tin. I covered the rim of the tin with Adirondack Dabber in Gold and brished this lightly onto the edge of the paper. Then I used my Cropadile to punch some holes round the tin and threaded some ribbons through these. This is my first attempt at tin altering, feel the urge to try some more :0)
