Altered altoid mint tins





Finally got round to altering my collection of altoid mint tins with french text papers, beads from arizona, collage images from cemerony. twine and ribbon....perfect as little presents for someone special.


We have had some lovely spring weather yesterday and today so have been making the most of it..I have done a digi journal page for today called gothic springtime..it features a photo of some snowdrops I took last month.

Gosh Lorraine..you are just amazing! I LOVE the little altoid mint boxes! Between you and Shona, I hardly know what to think. How do you guys think of these things? Shona showed me an altered art butterfly necklace at church yesterday and I was just so impressed.

Altered art is growing on me..especially since I won some in the OWOH giveway. Did you win anything? I was so surprised!

Oh, These are lovely. I wish I liked Altoids but I can't use them so I don't get the tins. lol
