I like Kit-Kat, unless I'm with 4 or more people.

This little tin was begun after I found a vintage Dick and Jane book, and I kept looking at the illustrations and thinking of my mom. She has a huge collection of vintage toys and grew up reading the books. The girl image came from a printable miniature paper doll sheet, and I scrounged around the kids' rooms for miscellany. I really want to add more to it; I feel it isn't complete, but it'll do for a first try.

I think it's adorable and has just the right amount of miscellany Smiley. I like the vintage-vibe.

It's wonderful, and it does not look like your first try!  Nice work!

I really like this! The doll on the side is adorable! I have recently started altering these tins too and hadn't thought of putting "feet" on them in this direction. What a great idea!

I can't believe I missed this! I'm a huge fan of altered tins, and this one is divine! I love the retro feel.
