Altered Coffee Break Tin

I covered this tin with some paper given to me at a Crazy Croppers event in Lake Country a couple of years ago. I always liked the paper, but ended up hoarding it instead of using it. It turned out beautifully on this tin.

The underside of the lid was stamped and decorated with SU products. Some of the stamps are long since retired, but I just found them on Ebay recently and was soooo excited!! I had my eye on them from about 3 years ago when the stamps were a level 3 hostess set (completely unattainable to me at the time).

I sent this full of little gifts to my Secret Sister in Calgary. Unfortunately, the post office delivered it, but it somehow did not end up in her hands. So annoying. I hope whoever did receive it enjoyed it as much as I think my SS would have!

These tins are really nice to cover as the front buckle and the handle are removable. No fancy moves required to fit your paper around them!

If you'd like to know more about this project, feel free to leave a comment/question.
