Altered Tin

I've joined quite a few swaps recently, most are completed, just a few more left to go. I did this for the altered tin swap on ACP. We just have to alter one tin, fill it with a few crafting goodies and send it to our "secret" partner. I'm really having fun making these little glittered wands. I was originally using the Maya Road crystal stars, but when I ran out, I die cut some stars from foamcore, glittered them with German Glass Glitter, and then added a cut piece from a paperclip.

I just gessoed the tin, painted it, added some Halo Iridescent 3D Glitter-Gel from Viva Decor to it (I'm loving that stuff! You can get it at Scrapbook Island.), a few pearls, a little bling, some lace, punched a hole on the side for a rhinestone brad to open the tin...and all done!

Here's a look at some of the goodies inside for my "secret" sister.
