An Altered Tin - I broke down and did it!

ETA: I was in such a hurry to get showered up to go stamping at Marcie's I totally forgot to tell you where I got the tutorial for this altered pop-top tin!!! Sooooo sorry!!! Click this link and it will take you there!! and yep! I ate all the peaches....YUMMY!!

Yes, I finally altered a tin! I don't know why I was kicking up such a fuss!! It wasn't that bad....I only did a little itty bitty one.....the pop-top one.

I did this tin for Kraftin' Kimmie's Celebration Challenge. This is actually the first of six challenges. I went into this one kicking and screaming like a little baby!! LOL!

I just surrounded the tin with Webster's designer paper and then wrapped some offray ribbon around the top.

I stamped Papertrey Ink's Beautiful Blooms on white cardstock in Versamagic chalk ink - tea rose, sage and pine cone and cut out the flowers and LAYERED them up! LOTS of layers!!

I popped up the layers around the tin and then on the lid I just used a Prima flower layered with other primas and added a heart brad in the center! Pretty easy!

Although when I was done I forgot about the pull I guess they will have to remove the flower to get into it. There are M&M breast cancer chocolate covered nuts in it! YUMMY!!

I wasn't even able to nibble, because I gave up candy for Lent! I wondered if candy was just wrapped candy, or jelly beans, or if I should get that technical ---but I guess candy is candy and that really includes chocolate!!

It is not so bad really. During the MFT release on Wednesday night. one girl was giving up stamping!!! What a strong woman she is!!

Well, thank goodness I finished this challenge! I feel better about it too!
