My partner received last week so I guess it's OK to post pics of what she got.
I got Morelove as my swap partner, I chose her theme "bunnies" and her favourite colours blue and purple.

The Altoids tin is covered in polymer clay (this was way harder than I expected, but I like how it turned out, and I learned a lot about polymer clay). I used a silvery paint to add some sparkle to the tin, and because her Bunnie's name is "Frosty".
Inside the tin were 2 pins a bunny and a purple flower, 2 charms for her cats' collars, 2 marble magnets embellished with sparkly buttons, and 2 handmade eyeshadows (not pictured).



Here is a close-up of the magnets:



I also sent the tin in a little knitted bag for protection.

I hope Morelove liked everything, and can't wait to see what she sent me.  Grin

Sorry about the pics, I'm not a great photographer

Goodness Gracious!

Hey Everyone! Yes, Monkeythumb I recieved your FAB tin yesterday! Sweeeeet!
I've had to work both brunches (sat and sun) and did not have time last night because I went to a party and got too tipsy to post! *whoops!* Shocked
I'm home now and will post tonight.
Suffice to say, I'm very happy and Monkeythumb did a really great job!

Without further ado: I present my Insect themed tin from Monkeythumb!
She did a Great job and I am just super pleased with my cute little tin Kiss

The Outside of the tin which has a picnic theme and little bead ants marching along the top! And, she sewed the coverlet.... Man! What craftmanship! I forgot to take a picture of the sides but she hand painted grass and little ants and on the bottom are button "feet".


Here is the inside with little dividers and tiny bead bugs inside!


This is a tiny embroidered patch.. so cute!


A card with Rhinoceros  beetles on it and Scrabble letters.


And lastly... a closeup of the tiny beads... We have a bee, a dragonfly, a butterfly just to name a few. They are so wee and pretty!



I love insects (duh!) and as you can see this is just perfect!

I hope Monkeythumb loves her tin as much as I love mine Grin

Thanks Tisha!! You're the best!
