Altered Tin Challenge

Over on the Bubbly Scrumptious blog as well as tons of inspiration they are have a monthly challenge (sometimes with prizes - yippee). Well this month's challenge is to alter a tin.

I found this round tin which my son gave me - it had a bendy monkey in it originally haha - and thought that I would alter it very simply.

So I covered it in Cosmo Cricket Mr Campy paper and painted a grungeboard arrow with an acrylic dabber and stuck it to the top of the tin. I then added the word recycle and stuck that on the arrow too.

I intend to put inchies inside until they are ready to get stuck into my new book I made for them which I will blog another time.

Thanks for looking at my blog please leave a comment. Ta x

Great tin Tracey.

What a great idea to use it to keep your inchies safe. Just hope you manage to keep the tin safe!! LOL (that would be my problem!)

Have a great week, sorry I missed chat.

Take care.
