Here's a little altered tin I made for a swap with a friend.  I used washi tape for the edges as it gives a nice smooth finish which I just couldn't get with paper and when I tried paint, the lid just got stuck!  Inside the tin is a little selection of goodies which I know she'll like.  Can't wait to see the tin I'll get in return - its always lovely to get a surprise from a crafty friend.

Thanks for coming by and for your kind comments - I really appreciate them.


  1. This is gorgeous and one of my favourite CI images graces the lid of your tin.
    A beautiful swap.

  2. Very pretty. I bet there were some sweet goodies in that tin. Can't wait to see what you get back.

  3. Hi there! I love your altered tin. The image on the lid is stunning and the choices of paper are wonderful...Thanks for leaving a comment about mine and thanks for the advice about the tape. I think I will definitely try that next time. I had the same problems with the edges of the paper! Love from Laura xxxx

  4. Oh how fun! I love how you decorated the inside as well as the outside! Aren't crafty swaps fun?!

  5. Beautiful make Margie. Love it! :)x
