Travelling Tin :


Good morning all!  I have been busy, busy in the real world.  Every chance I've gotten, I've been outside enjoying the weather or staining our deck (and battling the massive amounts of mosquitos out there - yikes!)

This week's inspiration photo challenge at Papercraft Star is:


My inspiration: metal, feminine and masculine, travel/maps, warm colours


I upcycled an old tea tin, wrapped in map paper, lace, twine, and ribbon:


I also used a Tim Holtz curio cabinet pull on the lid - easy access to whatever you put inside!


Tin Ingredients:  Tim Holtz Idea-ology papers, Celebrate It ribbon and lace, random package twine, Bead Landing metal accents, Tim Holtz Curio pull.  Tools:  EK Success Corner punch.

I made this tin for the following challenges:  Natalie and Amy - trash to treasure, Try it on Tuesday - metal, 2 Creative Chicks - 3D


Don't forget to check out the rest of my teamie's beautiful creations:
  and Sue!
