I have been GRADUALLY altering them as Card Organizers. Very time-consuming project, but well worth it! I have several more of these Card Organizers to make.... here's the first two with hopefully more to come within the week!
The two altered tins I made today use the HAPPY ME SIMPLY SCRAPPIN' BUNDLE (Level 3 Hostess). Gosh I LOVE this bundle!!!! So colorful, versatile, and FUN! (See recipe below). The two tins are very similar with slight differences.
Below are the dividers for each tin. The words, "Birthday", "Thank You", "Holidays", "Get Well / Sympathy", "Friendship", "Congrats", and "Misc" were printed from the computer on Soft Sky CS and punched out with the Round Tab Punch...embellished with White Brads.
Paper: Happy Me Simply Scrappin' Bundle (Level 3 Hostess), Groovy Guava, Soft Sky, and Purely Pomegranate CS.
Embellishments: Purely Pomegranate, Soft Sky & Groovy Guava Double Stitched Grosgrain Ribbon, Sky Label Holder by Making Memories, White Brads (non-SU).
Tools: 1 1/4" Circle Punch (for cut-out around latch), Word Window Punch (for cut-out around handle), Round Tab Punch (for dividers)
Supplies: Lots and lots and lots of Sticky Strip, Stampin' Dimensionals or Foam Tape.
Notes: The word "CARDS" under the Label Holder and the words on the dividers are printed from the computer. The DP for the lid is TWO pieces to fit around the handle.
These are absolutely wonderful!
These altered tins are great, the paper and flowers are wonderful
Nancy these are gorgeous. Just love them. Wow what a bargain. I tried to alter a paint can but I have arthritis and just couldn't hold it and get the paper straight. I know it takes some doing to get these to look so beautiful. Can't wait to see the other ones. TFS :)
These are just adorable!
Oh boy Nancy, these are so cute!!! I'd love to be able to get a couple of these at yardsales but I just haven't been lucky. LOL and I'm a big yardsale junky. I do find things periodiacally. Also my friend found a little pencil container (the hard plastic ones with the colorod lids) at a sale once with 10 litte punches in them for about $1 and guess who she gave 'em too?? I'm glad you got a great windfall and thanks for sharing your beautiful work.
So absolutely beautiful -- love the colors.
These are just GORGEOUS! What a great alteration....and what a garage sale find!
Oh wow, these tins are so cute and will be so helpful in organizing! I have never tried altering anything before, but I can see that it is definitely worth giving it a try. Thanks for sharing such great creativity.
This is so cute! I wish I could get this kit! Maybe I will have to try it with another kit. Great job! TFS
Wow, I really like what you did with the tins! And, ya gotta love a bargain.
These would make such awesome gifts ... they are really cute.
How totally well done! Love it!
More beautiful tins!! These are just as pretty as your others! Love them!!
