Altered Altoids Tin

What a cute challenge I found at Clear It Out Tuesday, to alter an item. Well one time I was in the U.S. I bought some Altoids and the tin has been sitting empty on my table for a while now. I decided it would make a cute embellishment box so I punched 6 pink and 3 purple 2 inch scallops, took my bone folder and broke down the fibers a bit then spritzed them with water and scrunched them up. When they were dry I layered them and put them on the tin that I had put some purple cs. and I used my leaf die from Cherry Lynn Designs. I attached some pearls to glitz it up a bit.

Thanks for stopping by and hope you have a crafty day today.

Barb, this is beautiful! Those flowers are so pretty and I love the pearl embellishments. I keep thinking I need to do something with my empty altoid tins - thanks for the inspiration.
