Altered Tins

I bought these little tins at Michael's for 60 cents after Christmas & saw them sitting there in my HUGE pile of alterable items that NEVER get altered & thought "What the heck". So I grabbed my Mod Podge and my foam brush and went to work! These are the result. They didn't take long - they are just messy!!!

Wish I had a better view of the side - I used chocolate chip dp and some chocolate chip ribbon.

Here is the second one I did - using Bella Rose paper and a cute Tilda. This one is for my friend Lorinna's birthday (I know she reads my blog so...HI!!!)


Better side view of this one. I filled it with a Magnolia stamp and some embellies! Hope she likes it!!!
