This is my first try at altering an Altoid Mints Tin. I really enjoyed it. I made it into a proposal tin. Wouldn't it be a great idea for someone to use to propose to their loved one.
One thing I didn't account for is that when painted, the lid is hard to close shut. So, I would recommend, no paint. The paint got covered anyway after I got started embellishing.
This is the front where I tied a piece of seam binding and a heart charm. Also, trim the top lid with pink rack rack.
The back has the painted surface and the flower cutout from wallpaper.
Inside cover I adhered pretty tissue, then a vintage inspired picture of a couple dancing. The other side has the pretty tissue as background. The vintage photo of the couple with flowers was spritz with a bit of water, then I scratched the words, "Marry Me".
Below you see the whole "booklet" with the marriage proposal. The awesome boutennaire was given to me by someone who had me as a swap partner. This was an extra wonderful suprise she sent me. Isn't it adorable?
