Altered Christmas Tins


I've had a tradition over the last number of years to make gifts for the teachers at my son's schools. The altered tins that I have been making seem to be a hit, especially when they are stuffed with candy, cookies and biscuits!





The tins feature an assortment of papers, from Melissa Frances nostalgic Christmas packets, BoBunny's Christmas HoHoHo papers and embellishments, and Creative Imaginations Winter paper. I even used a page from my Mary Engelbreit desktop calendar for one of the images on a tin.
