Birthday Altered Tins

Hi there and welcome to Studio 5380.
I hope your week is going well for you. We are rolling right along my house - getting into the back-to-school groove!  It's been a while and I'm still adjusting to having a 5 year old in the house full time, but we are getting our routine down and each day gets a little easier.

Stephanie over at The Stamps of Life released 4 new exclusive die sets today and I thought I would share a project I created with the new Happy Birthday Word Dies....

I started with these cute little metal tins. They are about the size of an Altoids Mint tin.  I've had them stashed away in a drawer for a long time and I don't remember where I purchased them.  Sure wish I could remember because I think they turned out really cute!

I covered each tin in patterned paper, one appropriate for a girl and one for a boy.  I used the "celebrate" sentiment and banner die from the Sizzix Framelits Birthday Cake Set on the inside of each tin.  A bit of ribbon wrapped around the bottom of each tin adds to the festive look.

Instead of candy or gum, gift cards and cash fit in these fun little tins quite nicely!

These were so quick and easy to put together and if I can ever remember where I found these little tins, I plan to purchase more to keep on hand!

Okay, that's it for me today.  If you come across these tins, please drop me a line and let me know where you found them!  Have a great day and I'll be back soon.....
