Yay!  I hope you liked it.  I'm glad it arrived safely.  The tin has had a rather dubious past (it belonged to a friend of mine) so I was a little worried about Customs and sniffer dogs...





The best part about doing this shrine was the elephant.  I think I've got a picture of how ugly and evil-looking it was before I started working on it!  I haven't got time right now but I'll dig it up.

I made a box out of thin cardboard (from a cracker box) and stapled the fabric to the bottom of it.  Then I hot glued it into the tin.

I'm so inspired by all of these fun shrines that I have to make one for a friend's birthday! I really like the idea of using an altoid tin, but I was also wondering where everyone got those cool mini wardrobe looking boxes. Are they smaller than they look in the pics? I'm particularly in awe of the tattoo shrine!

bkrenning4, glad you liked your shrine!!!  i had fun making it.  figured that since you liked celestial stuff and the outdoors, i could go with a nighttime/sleepytime theme. 

**edit**
i got my shrine today in the mail!  i love that the inside is 3-D.  here are some pics.  thanks so much!!  not sure of your craftster name...

i got my absolutely fabulous shrine from bkrenning4 today!  it really is the best, most elaborate, detailed, incredible thing ever!  It's dark green with a total garden theme.  on the outside there are flowers and a little picket fence and little trees. the inside has mini flower pots and gardening tools and seed packets and a hose and a gardening hat and beautiful pressed fall leaves.  bk-i hope you can post a picture.  if not, i will hunt down a camera, it just might take a while. 

i'll be sending my shrine this week, definitely by thurs, the mail-by date.  i got a little behind because i lost power for 3 days when ivan passed through.

i'd definitely be up for another one of these!

i am glad i was not the only one pushed back by ivan. i live in foley, alabama and the eye moved right up highway 59 going through orange baech, gulf shores and then traveling on up through foley

Okay, bear with me, I'm going to gush...

I have to say that the swaps are the best example of why I love Craftster.  I absolutely LOVE how you can take a theme and then see how several people interpret that theme in totally different ways!  I am so inspired when I see what other people have done and think, "Oh, cool, I would never have thought of that!"  There are so many creative people here!
