Altered Tin

I have not decided for sure what to do with this yet. It is one of those things that I like so much that I don't know if I can give it away, but I don't know what I would do with it...Guess I'll have to do some thinking. It was originally intended to be a wedding gift - a recipe tin with some recipes from other friends in it, but the brides mother was already doing a recipe idea was out. I'm sure I'll figure something out.

The paper is Afternoon Tea by SU!, the hardware is the new hodgepodge silver from SU!s mini album. The ribbon is from HL.

I had a lot of fun making it! :) Thanks for looking!

Gift Ideas

These are little covered note pads. I found the note pads at the dollar store - 8 for a dollar I think. The paper used on them are from various places. The colorful striped paper is from Nana's Nursery (DCWV) The yellow striped paper is from the dollar spot at Target. The stamps are SU! Priceless and one of the hostess sets (I can't think of which one right now). The pens were from the Target dollar spot too (16 for a dollar!). The yellow ribbon is from the Michael's dollar bin...what else? Oh, the little "faux brads" are from the floral section in Michael's! I took two pictures of the first one because I couldn't get the lighting right...someday I'll figure it out! Thanks for looking!

Misc Cards

Hard to see all the details with the lighting in my dining room. Need to find a better way to take pictures, but I think at least you can get the idea of what the cards look like! Much prettier in person I promise! These are trial runs for a gift idea! Thanks for looking!
