Love the Day of the Dead Altoid tin... good colors for its celebration too.

What kind of wavy blade/cutter did you use for the edgings on the top strips?

Thanks!  I'm not nearly talented enough to sculpt the bodies (I make note of that when I sell them, but I didn't bother to do so here).  These are recycled or repurposed porcelain doll parts.

Thank you!
I use a dull ol' Olfa pinking wheel for the edging.

I love the contrast of the very beautiful women looking so serene and the gore.  Very cool!
