Altered Tins from Grandma

We have a little inspiration for all of you on this fine Tuesday! Grandma has been hard at work creating more fun goodies for the blog and gallery! Here are a couple of altered tins that grandma created using some familiar collections. Take a look:

Luggage Tin by Grandma

Grandma used the Graphic 45 - On the Boardwalk collection for this fun tin. I love how she cut apart the High Style Holiday images as the main focus of her tin.

Here is the back of the tin. More of the High Style Holiday images.

Love all that ribbon! The luggage tag adds such a neat touch!

Grandma added so much detail to this! I love the little umbrella brads and the sea shell as the flower center!

Card Tin by Grandma

I love all of the purple, it's so cheerful! Grandma used some Bo Bunny papers and Basic Grey Kioshi Pops and Element Stickers. I love how well they match!

Here is the back of the tin. I love the green lace and that flourish sticker adds a nice finishing touch!

I'm such a girl -- I just love all of those ribbons!!

The perfect container for storing your cards!

Thanks for looking at Grandma's creations! Stay-tuned for more inspiration and maybe even another sneak peek!

Happy Crafting
