Thought it might be time to post this, since I had the afternoon off. This tin was made for the Wicked Vices Altered Tin Swap for Miss Knickertwist. Her vices her packrat hoarding , swearing, boozing, procrastination and uh. Something else that I completely forgot about but should know. Oops.  Cheesy



Went peeking through Knicker's pinterest and found pictures of gorgeous gypsy wagons, and so the journey started!
I cut out a window with my dremel (one of the hardest things EVER!) and constructed a roof, wagon wheel and some wee stairs out of thick scrapbook paper and cereal boxes.
All the major components were covered with a homemade paper clay to give it a cohesive look.





BUTTONS FOR EVERYONE! I attached a matchbox that was stuffed with buttons. Made a small button window garden, and stack some on the roof. I focused the most on the pat rack vice and just overstuffed the tin with buttons. B




As always, some hidden bits that you would only find if you went looking.  Cheesy

And finally a close up if the insides of the tin. I made the little table out of half of a matchbox - the legs are matches that I burned down to the right length. Little wine bottles made out of beds and bits are on the table - along with a tiny curse word.



Comments, critiques and questions are welcome!  Grin

The distressed finish worked here, I can't even tell that it fell apart on the journey! Or you must be wickedly awesome at repair work. Cheesy

Did you find the hidden bits, Knicker?  Lips sealed


Also, thanks everyone! It's so fun making these tins.

Sorta been MIA from this thread - but I wanted to get Miss Knickertwists tin up~ She sent my this little lovely secret keeper tin. My pictures are a little fuzzy, but I know knicker posted her tin in it's own thread with wonderful pictures!  Cheesy





My favorite bits are the wee house! And there's a little bundle of text from a book with a pen nib in one of the tiny spaces that is just adorable.

I <3 it! Thanks so much knicker, you were a great partner~  Cheesy
