Halloween Altoid Tin

Happy Saturday, peeps!  Hope you have something fun planned this weekend!  My sister was visiting this past weekend and fell in love with the little Halloween Altoid tin I had made several years ago.  You can see it here. I have several empty tins in my stash, so I went looking for some vintage stamps and papers and went to work!  This is the front; it features a stamped witch (Crafty Secrets), watercolored, fussy-cut and layered on some striped paper that was also stamped and embellished with some stickers (Tim Holtz and Crafty Secrets) and sequins:


The back features another Crafty Secrets image, mounted on some scrapbook paper:


Did you notice the black cat perched on top?  He's an Impression Obsession diecut! 


I covered the sides and top with some Sticky Strip and metallic ribbon, then added a hand-dyed shabby seam binding bow on top....hot glue works best!


And here is the inside; more Crafty Secrets images and embellishments along with some glimmer paper stars and a few more stamped items:


I love this sassy little girl and the man in the moon!  The spiderweb paper in the background adds a spooky touch:


I happened to have two of these images, so I after gluing the first one in, I fussy cut the second one and popped her up on some little "boosters" so she would stand out!  I am so sad that Crafty Secrets is no longer in business; they had the best vintage stuff!


I am going to enter this over at Two Old Bats Halloween Challenge---of course, it's Anything Halloween, and also at TGIF Challenges - Halloween!  

And now this is winging its way to South Carolina as we speak! I hope she likes it!  Thanks for popping in today!  

And here are some not-too-scary pix from my morning walks:




My neighbor up the road is a single guy but I think he just got a girlfriend....his house is suddenly decorated very seasonally!  I am coveting his wagon!

Enjoy your day and be blessed!

Love this, LeAnne! I have done the Altoid Tins years ago and still have them! I recently just came across it in a stamp draw, it has pictures of my kids in it from when they were little! Love the vintage items you used on yours! It just makes me smile and i'm sure your sister is going to cherish it! Great Halloween project!

This is filled with all things vintage and fabulous! I think she'll love this, LeAnne. That web is amazing but I love the delicate string of 'pearls' in the second photo!

what a fun and creative way to recycle Altoid tins! Love those vintage images and fun ribbons! Great photos too! I had something about 5 inches long looking like a milky white pencil sticking out of one of my berry-filled shrubs this morning and when we went to investigate what it was, it shrunk back into the bush! Must have been a snake - yikes!
