Hi everyone! Happy Friday! I am rounding off my Trendsetter Week at the There She Goes Blog and this is my Dollar Find Friday project.

I decided to alter an altoid tin, readily available for just about a $1.00. This was ALOT of fun to make!

I started by stamping the cow image from ROFL Taglines and colored her with Copic Markers. I then cut out the panel using a die and attached it to the front of the tin with Scor-Tape. I added a flower/button/twine combo for a bit of whimsy and some Viva Pearls all around the edge. I stamped the sentiment, "Do you know why they call it PMS?" directly onto the panel.

For the inside, I finished up the sentiment with "Because Mad Cow Disease was already taken" and added a simple scallop border with some more Viva Pearls. I added a package of Motrin...helps with the PMS.

This was SO fun to make...I hope you enjoyed it!!

Thanks SO much for stopping by! Hope to see you tonight in the TSG Forum for Friday Night Chat!

  10. So cute! I have lots of Altoid tins and I would love to do something silly and fun with them, like this. I tried one time but couldn't cut the paper just right for the top. You said you used a die, I think. Is it the TE die or something? Any help would be appreciated. The pearls and all was just the cutest detail!
