I've had this metal lunch box for almost 2 years, and I finally altered it!  I used scrapbook paper to cover it, then decorated it with handmade fabric and paper flowers.

The other photos won't load.  Embarrassed  If you would like to see the top of the pail and the flowers, you can see them here:  http://www.psiloveyouscrapbooking.com/altered-metal-lunch-box-using-stampin-up-twitterpated/

That's lunching in style, it's beautiful.  I'll bet you get a lot of looks carrying it.

That's so pretty!  I think it looks great.  Are you going to use it as a lunch box or for something else?

I'm scared that I'd mess it up if I used it for my lunch.  I have a group of friends that get together every month to swap handmade cards, and it's the perfect size for taking my cards to swap night Smiley
