So after two years of gawking, I am finally posting something. AND that something is my very first altered altoid tin.
My boyfriend is in a band and I'm partially responsible for the merchandise that gets sold. Not only do we always decorate the packaging, but it's always extra fun to throw in some oddities along with the purchased goods. For the last package we sent out, I decided to give my go at altering an altoid tin, since I love the endless possibilities of what someone can use a small container for.
I haphazardly hot glued miscellaneous bits from my junk box to the top. Painted it, then used Rub-N-Buff (which I have been applying to anything and everything I can, because the effect might as well be magic).
I was hoping to achieve a sorta steampunk-esque, rustic vibe.
I decided to stay real simple with the rest and mod podge magazine cut-outs to the inside, the back of the lid and the bottom.
Also, I made a small felt smiley sun just the right size to be a nice surprise for the person receiving the package.
Then this is the back. I love crumpling magazine cut-outs to get a really wrinkled, old effect. Also, I thought it went well with the plain, textural image.
Well, that's it!
Feel free to ask questions, make comments and critique m'kay?
