I was looking at my favorite blogs on August 1st, and saw a new swap over at A Swap for All Seasons. (you have one more day to sign up for their swap if you are interested) They are doing an altered treasure tin swap. I figured that would be so fun to do as a swap with my sister!
Here’s the tin I made for Beth. I went with a blue and green floral theme.
3 tiny clothespins that I added fancy paper and a jewel to; roll of ribbon with music notes on it; tiny blue paper flowers; a charm with victorian lady, butterfly and flowers on it; and I punched a bunch of flower, leaf, and butterfly shapes with my paper punches.
Beth made me a mermaid themed tin!
My sweet nieces and nephew got involved too! Beth made the shell bracelet; Jill made the knotted friendship bracelet; Lucy made the tiny ship out of clay; the pirate coin was donated from Robin. of coarse a sand dollar was the finishing touch!
thank you so much Beth and kids! you really made me feel special on my birthday!
