I hope nooo found them!

When I bought the tin it was supposed to be bigger! Those things are super tiny - I spent a whole evening holding the tin and wondering if it would be too small.

Thanks, Limeriot - the tin was received super well!  Cheesy

Awesome job, very inspiring.  I've been wanting to do an altered tin.  The detail you cram into such a small space is amazing!

Thanks, everyone! The buttons were a last bit addition (glad they worked out!) - and I still wanted to out something on the front of the roof. None of my bits and bobs seemed appropriate though.  Tongue
