I am sooooooo excited about today's project!
I have attempted to alter an altoid tin before, and it was an epic fail!
Today however I am very excited about my hand coffin
Yep, that's right, a hand coffin...
Just in case you have some hands hanging around your house and you need somewhere to keep them!
I have never really tried this, and I decided to use paints
To achieve this rusted look!
It worked, but was a lot of work... Layer after layer of paint!
I looked at the box when it was done, and thought well, what can I make it into?? So I decided to add the bone hands inside.
I added some lace around the bottom, and even though you can't see it,
There are little feet on the bottom.
I had some white faux fur in my fabric stash that I added to the bottom of the box!
Then I did some embossing and glitter on the top inside of the box.
Finally I embossed the clock onto some aluminum tape that I colored with alcohol inks.
I ran a little staz on over the face of the clock so the numbers would pop out
Then I pounded some glass beads and adhered them to the surface.
I am finally happy with the outcome of an altered tin!
