It's no guess that as the owner of a company called "paper wings productions" I like winged things. Today I thought I would share an altered candy tin.  

I love to alter tins. My favorite way to make them look old fast is to put them in a fire. I usually do a whole bunch at one time. Sometimes I leave them outside for a while too, even in the rain. I sanded this tin before applying crackle paint to the embossed area in the middle of the tin. I stamped, cut out, and adhered the birds and the banner.

I wrapped the edge of the lid with red liner tape (1/4" fits perfectly!) and rolled it in silver vintage glass glitter.  The bottom part of the tin is covered with tissue tape (washi tape).  For feet, I glued on dice to the bottom of the box.
I hope you enjoyed my project today! Be sure and go to Shay's blog next to complete the hop. Thanks for joining us!
