Altered Cigar Tin

I joined a swap where the hostess was kind enough to supply us all with a cigar tin and we are to alter it and then send on to our partner. I thought it sounded like a unique challenge for me as I have not tried my hand at too much altering but I do enjoy it! So I made this tin for my partner and filled it with a few goodies for her too.

I used Americana Acrylic paint in Light Cinnamon to paint the top of the tin. The blue/brown paper is from The Paper Pack - JoAnn Fabrics and the blue solid paper is from The Paper Place. I used both papers in assorted sizes to cover the front and insides. The slide is from the Cuttlebug slides die and the ribbon is misc scraps I had on hand along with the double spiral clippo , flower and butterfly.

I used floral peel-offs to decorate the corners both outside and in. Memories stamped in Black Noir is a TAC stamp. For a finishing touch I used beads on the four corners to make "feet" for it to stand on. The beads are from a great shop not to far from me, I had fun playing and I will definately do it again sometime LOL
