Spring Fairy Altoid Tin with Tutorial

It's spring and my blasse mood is giving way to fairy dreams as the weather warms and the green shows through the grass. Swoon!


This month I'm going to show you how to create this pretty little altered Altoid tin with a sweet surprise inside.

On the outside I'm using an elmement from the Altoids Inserts Fairy Tale Frames,
Art Deco Corner Set and Faux Metal Number Plate.


I've used paper from Lemoncraft, but you could use any paper you love and make this project entirely suited to your own tastes.


Inside, I've used more elements from the Altoids Inserts Fairy Tale Frames. Behind the frame I've layered elements and images to give a dimentional effect.


This project is pretty dang cute and fairly easy to recreate, but I've made a demonstration video with some pointers that you might find useful.


Ready to make your own? Here's all the baubles and doodads you'll need:

Altoids Inserts Fairy Tale Frames
Art Deco Corner Set
Faux Metal Number Plates 1 to 25
Blank Altoids TinsScrapbook Paper (I've used Lemoncraft's Forget-me-not)
Foam squares
Glue
Gesso
Acrylic Paint
Glitter
Embellishments!
