Spreading "The Happy" - Creating Giftable Storeage From An Empty Tin

Happy Day Everyone! Today I am up on the Mixed Up Mag Blog with an in-depth tutorial showing you how I gave this empty Coffeemate tin a second life by altering it mixed media style and filling it with a gift of baking.

This is a fun process using lots of mixed media techniques and showcases this Elephant Stamps & Stencil set I received from Stampendous.  While the finished tin is rich in texture and color and lots of details it is created in only four-steps.
So why no pop on over to the Mixed Up Magazine BLOG to see all the details and lots more photos.
As always Thank YOU for popping by to see what I am to today and please do leave me a comment if you like what you are seeing!

  1. So cool! I've collected quite a few of these drums for altering but had to put them out for recycling as we didn't have enough space to store them. Never mind - I can always collect some more!

    1. Oh POOP! isn't that always the way?? You keep something forever and the day after you finally let it go... you NEED it! No wonder we have such a hard time throwing anything away... Smile. Thanks for the visit and the comment it was lovely to "see" you! (hugs)
