Altered Tins that are SNOW fun!

Good Monday morning to all of you! Ours was a busy weekend with Christmas shopping, gift wrapping, packing Christmas boxes, room arranging, finishing a custom piece of furniture, getting the Christmas cards ready to mail today not to mention ALL the cooking I have been doing lately. ;) Whew, I think I need another weekend already, lol.

I did steal some time to make these super quick and easy altered tins for my gift card giving. What would we do without these nowadays? Both feature an adorable snowman woolie from BG's Jovial line and Tiny Type alpha's from Cosmo Cricket. I used MME 12 Days of Christmas dp's on the "ray" tin and Crate Paper's Snow Day dp's on the "sara" tin. The star is also a woolie from the BG's Jovial felt sticker sheet and the glittered brad is by Paper Studio. The inside of the tins were decked out in coordinating papers and I used X-Pressit double stick tape to attach ribbon to the outside edge. As the recipients read my bloggie I'll refrain from showing the inside but you get the idea.

I love seeing all of the wonderful Christmas ideas that all of you are coming up with. I definitely need to work on Christmas throughout the year, like a lot of you, because this year I am coming up short. There's so much I want to do and so little time.

Thanks for stopping by today!

These are awesome!! Those little felt snowmen are adorable and such a pretty way to dress up the edges too! I think I have an altoids tin that's almost empty... Thanks for the inspiration!!
