Altered Tins

This has been on my "To Do" list for a while, so the challenge at "That Craft Place" was the prefect reason to alter my paint brush tins.  I saved these from Christmas to store my brushes in and they work just fine for that purpose.  However, they did need some prettying up.

Since, they needed to remain functional I have added minimal embellishments in the knowledge they will more than likely get covered in paint sooner or later (probably sooner).

Here they are both before and after altering:




Supplies:
Empty Tins
12 x12 paper by Prima
Lace from stash
Pink Flat-Back Pearls from stash
Hot glue Gun
Double sided tape
