Altered Tin! Matchbox Ornament! Freebies!!

Hello Friends!

Hoping you all had a lovely Thanksgiving with your families!

Are you feeling the crunch from having one less week between
Thanksgiving and Christmas this year?
I sure am, and I tried to get an early start by
crafting, crafting, crafting!

For our November Paper Soiree meeting
we were to alter TAZO tea tins.
I really had fun with this:

 
I sprinkled the tree with mica flakes and topped with a little red birdie.
The Believe is a glittered wooden embellishment.
I covered the tin with music paper
and cut out images from my favorite Christmas paper from last year,
 "All is Bright",
which you can now find in a big pad at Michaels.
I attached a large glittered snowflake in the front and back,
and glued the images on the snowflake.
The back is embellished as well, I just forgot to take a pic of it.
And of course I added lace, tinsel, pearls and glitter!

The tin is a perfect size in which to store these beautiful
tags, which Marti showed us how to make
in her make-n-take:
A closer view:

 The ornaments are a Tim Holtz die which I already had,
so I came home and made bunches of them!

I also made up a bunch of matchbox ornaments
like this one:


I do have more to show you, I just want to wait a bit
until the recipients receive their gifties.

Lorainne, these are incredibly beautiful! What a grand swap group you have! I couldn't tell you for a second which I like best! But you remind me -- I have a ton of tea tins and I just use them for storage. Maybe it's time to foof them up with some pretties!

Speaking of which, thanks for the graphics! They are terrific!
