Spooky Cute Altered Altoid Tin for ScraPerfect

Hello everyone!  Halloween is approaching and I was inspired by my friend Michelle Wells, who taught a class on altering Altoid tins, so I gave it a try with some ScraPerfect products,  Check it out!

I could not have completed this project without The Best Glue Ever!  It provided the perfect hold to attach everything to the metal Altoid tin.  I removed the lid of the tin and then covered it with two coats of black gesso.  I used The Best Glue Ever to glue the paper to the inside of the tin and glue dots to attach the ribbon around the edges.  For dimension, I added some foam tape to the back of the gold photo embellishment.  

On top of the tin, I used The Best Glue Ever again to glue the embellishments to the black rose from The Vintage Rose Emporium.  I made some larger glue dots and used them to affix the rose to the tin. For the bottom, I mounted the tin on a wooden knob that I painted orange and then covered with black lace. A dollop of The Best Glue Ever and light pressure for a few minutes to set worked like a charm to attach the finished tin to the base.  Finally, to remove any excess glue on the project and my hands, I used a small amount of The Best Cleaner Ever on the Perfect Cleaning Cloth.  The cleaner is amazing and I love that it is eco-friendly!

Thanks so much for stopping by to see my spooky cute altered Altoid tin, please leave me a comment.  You can see more of my work on my blog Vintage Rose Creations by Kim
