Santa Face Altoids tin


Hello everyone...hope you had a great weekend. They certainly go by fast here. I was busy working on my craft fair items.

I thought I'd share one of things I will be selling. This is not my original idea. I think I first saw it as a card on the Stampin' Up!'s Demo only Stampers' Showcase and then again over at SCS. I changed up the beard and eyes a little bit and placed it on an Altoid tin. I think it would be fun to put a gift card in it. I always like my recipient to have something to open, rather than just a gift card case.

First I spray painted my tins red since the only ones I had were Teal/Wintergreen flavor. And then, basically it is just cardstock and punches. I lined the back and insides with designer paper. The hat band is crimped with the Crimper and I placed some black ribbon around the sides to hide the expiration date. That's it! Fun to make!

Very cute, Connie! We must like the same flavor Altoids because those are the ones I have, too. I wonder if a deck of cards would fit in there--would be cute to buy some holiday cards for a little stocking stuffer.
