Whew… yesterday was a much needed break from blogging! I looked back on my blog entries and I hadn’t skipped a day in over a month. *insert shocked face* I had a very productive Sunday in getting ready for my craft show which is in less than a month! I’m getting so excited and I just hope that others are as excited to see/touch/buy all my stuff. I worked on these altered Altoid tins yesterday and hopefully they will be a good seller at the craft fair. If I weren’t mass producing these I would add more extras, but they’re time consuming enough without all the extras! I covered the top and bottom of the tin with Whisper White paper stamped with Snow Flurries in Green Galore, Real Red, and Bashful Blue in order to cover up the Altoid logos. I wrapped ribbon around the sides to cover up the “Best if used by” date. The “Christmas” is from the Everyday Flexible Phrases set and the “tags” is spelled out with the Whimsical Alpha. I doodled around the edges with a black journaler. The penguin, reindeer, snowman, and santa tag stamps are a set from The Angel Company. They are sooo cute! Santa has liquid applique on his beard and his eyebrows. The penguin and snowman are covered with stardust Stickles, and Rudolph has red Stickles on his nose. 🙂 These images are then cut out and mounted onto tags from my Sizzix. I’ve also added a pic of the Altoid tin open because the inside is decorated as well. Each tin will hold 20 tags. I have no idea what to charge for them… any suggestions? They really don’t take much in the way of supplies, but they sure are time consuming coloring all those images. Thanks for looking!
