We decided to create an altered Coffee Tin or any other tin or box of same size, and fill it with candy.
What a great Idea!
Here's my altered Coffee Tin:
It's made basically of simple cardstock paper, in plain colors. I cut it into pieces that would fit the embossing folders of my cuttlebug. Then I embossed two pieces of each color, and I used a couple of embossing folders: Birds & Swirls on the yellow paper, Stylized Flowers ob the Orange, and Floral Fantasy on the Pink and Red.
Then I cut those embossed pieces into much smaller pieces, and started gluing them to a base paper, creating a collage of colors and textures.
When Finished, I glued the collage to the Tin, and covered the whole think with a clear self-adhesive film.
The top used the same technique of embossed papers, and I cut circles using different styles of scissors.
Hagar got my tin, and I was really pleased, cause she seemed to love it, and I love that the person receiving my creations really loves it.
I got a beautiful box from Adi, and here it is:
It was filled with chocolate and candy!
Did I mention it was a great Idea???
