Racky & I both have a couple of swaps to finish up, so we were thinking of starting this in a couple weeks. Sound ok?

Hey!  I just stumbled across this thread (thank goodness!)  Cheesy  I made that little surfer tin... tee hee!  My partner before was PinkMafia...and what fun it was!

I would love, love, love to join ~ I have a lot of ideas left over from the last one.  I think I had tinn-ed PinkMafia out with what I sent so I didn't make everything I wanted to, so I still have some reserve creativeness (and tins) left over... I neeeeeed to use Smiley

Here's what I did last time.. http://www.columbusgamers.com/sweetness/altoidtins.htm

I love the idea of the partner giving the theme, and filling it full of goodies... as well.  Nice touch!  Can't wait... Smiley

Dibs on sweets4ever !

Those are amazing! I didn't realize there were more! How did you get the beads to stick to the red/black one?

I was totally lucky to get you!! Cheesy  It was my first swap & you were the best.. Smiley

Those are amazing! I didn't realize there were more! How did you get the beads to stick to the red/black one?

Hot glue for the center design & border.  Then I brushed a layer of glue where the seed beads were going to be placed & flattened them all on. After I thought I was all done, I didn't like the bright red of the seed beads, so I used some iredescent black paint over them to darken them up a bit, which doubled as a lovely glaze. Smiley  They stuck really well, but now that I have worked with them more, I will probably use E6000 in the future.

The beads were supposed to be in a design that is similar to a tattoo she has Smiley
The beach...well...because she lives in Hawaii.
The purse because she likes Rockabilly stuff (and I just really wanted to make a purse from the big one, hehe)
And the belt... I dunno why.  I decoupaged faeries on it though & used some of the colors she likes Cheesy
