Alter a tin

Hope you all had a good Easter with lots of lovely choccy eggs. Did you keep all the lovely papers and boxes ready for a bit of upcycling like we did last week. It was lovely to see all the fantastic innovative ways everyone used there redundant bits and pieces.

Random Org has chosen a winner for us again this week

And it is

Number 49

Now onto this week and I (Pat) have chosen the theme of altering a tin. I have lots of tins lying around that I can't bear to throw away so thought this might be a good idea, until I tried to come up with a design that is. So I challenged myself with this one, will I ever learn? Anyway I'm sure you will come up with some amazing designs just as my fellow teamies have. We can't wait to see them.

Once again this week the challenge is sponsored by our good friends at the Craft Barn. So to be in with a chance of winning their ................. voucher don't forget to give them a mention and link them in your post.

Our guest designer this week is Freya and here is her take on the theme.

Isnt it great?

Here are the creations that the DT have come up with starting with mine.If you'd like to see what they were like before we got started just follow the links to the individual blogs.



Fantastic aren't they? So do you feel inspired? We do hope so. We know that altering is not everyone's cup of tea but we started Try it on Tuesday try to encourage you lovely crafters out there to give it a go so I hope we've inspired you to do just that!
