Once Upon A Time Altoid Tin

Hi it's Liz from Junque Drawer Designs with a project I did for a Facebook group I belong to called Art Across The Miles, an international mail art swap group.  I had never altered an altoid tin before and I had fun doing this swap incorporating Craft Fantastic products!

I had an awesome fairytale collage sheet so I decided to theme my tin around a few fairytale characters.  My swap partner would receive the altered tin plus a special pendant incorporating the fairytale theme.

I then picked out images from the sheet to decorate the inside using assorted charms and decorative bling I had from my craft stash.

I chose the Silver Elegant Tray for the Cinderella image which I thought worked well with the fairytale theme.  I used a silver Pinch Bail to affix the tray onto a Silver 30" Rolo Chain.

I then packaged up my altered altoid tin to my swap partner and hoped that she would love it !

The Pendant was placed in the tin as an extra surprise!  I also included in the package to my partner some Craft Fantastic goodies so she can make something of her own.  I can't wait to see what she may make!

Craft Fantastic products used for the pendant are:

Silver Elegant Tray
Extra Large Glass Round
30" Silver Rolo Chain
Silver Pinch Bail
Super /Sticky Dots
Craft Fantastic Glaze and Glue


  1. Just stunning, Liz. Love it and I"m sure your swap partner will love it too.

  2. A wonderfully clever and creative way to give a gift! Love it!
