Altered Tins

I have been busy making altered tins!!! They are tins by Provo Craft ordered online. The flowered one has PP by Memory Makers, Primas, buttons, ribbon, and the ribbon charm is by Memory Makers. The purple one has PP by Hot Off The Press, ribbon charm from JoAnne's, ribbon, bling, locket charm from JoAnne's, flowers by Heidi Grace, and flower charm by Making Memories. They were easy to do. The only suggestion I have is for you to use the thicker, heavier pp....the thin, light-weight stuff seems to wrinkle easier. You apply Modge Podge to the tin first then the paper, then more MP. You can get the directions at


  1. You have been busy altering!!! These are just fabulous!

  2. I love them, Maybe I can do something similar to this to my new galvanized steel buckets!!!
    You are just one creative cookie!

  3. Wonderful!!! I saw these in the PC gallery and I was impressed! : )

  5. wowza! those are some impressive tins! I'm partial to the rainbow colored one, it's so happy! but I like the purple too, it's so pretty!

  6. How impressive! I really like them all. I'm especially loving the bright colored one with flowers... such haapy colors. Very cheerful.

    Great job!
