altered candy tin

i altered this little 3.5' round tin for my godmother for xmas. it had chocolates in it at one time, now it has become a home for fancy gold paperclips. i painted the lid with black alcohol inks, decoupaged fabric paper on top, and glued ribbon around the side of the lid. the embellishment is a metal pendant and glass heart, with beaded accents. i added a decorative key on top of the heart, and dabbed gold acrylic paint around the top edge. i really like the combination of gold and silver, and the 3-dimensionality of the lid. can't wait to make some more!!


  1. Your tin is so creative, the piece is fantastic!
