Gift Tin

This is my second project for PaperArtsy this week.  I started from a tin that I recycled.  I wanted to use the ultra-cool Hot Pick Xtra 05 - Hardware stamps because there are hinges, keyholes and they have coordinating dies.

If you visit the PaperArtsy blog you can get all the details on my project.   I wanted to share a few other photos so you can see the different angles.

And when you open it up a little surprise message inside:

Other products used include: PaperArtsy Metal Card 12 x 12 (I love that it comes in 12 x 12 sheets), Hot Pick XTRA 01 - Backgrounds, Ranger Archival Ink - Black, StazOn - Jet Black Ink, Fresco Paint - Ice BlueFresco Paint-Pewter

Tomorrow we are going to visit Bluebell Woods.  A touch of spring for us all.



  1. Fabulous altered piece Suzz, love how you decorated the inside with the map and fabulous sentiment. Love the lock and great images and colour too. Tracy x

  2. Love how you turned this tin into shabby awesomeness. Perfectly masculine!

  3. This look amazing.. I can see myself storing lots of craft goodies in there.. :)


  4. Another fab project showcasing the equally fab PaperArtsy products. Love the shabby look you've achieved here Sue.
