Oh hey look, a project. It's been a long time since I've posted something crafty (long time since I've done something crafty, actually!), yeah? So here we go.

Reconned altoid tin for crafty_dame. She's got a thing for anatomical hearts, so I glued some seed beads down into that shape and very lightly painted some red in there, which wasn't the most easy thing to accomplish and have it not look messy. I glazed the hell out of it so the beads wouldn't come off very easily. The top is scratched in a checkered pattern. The side was repainted red, albeit a bit haphazardly. I quite like the result!

Thanks! Me too, I was quite surprised at how well it turned out. I thought it would look less like a heart.

Thanks! And hey, first post on craftster! I'm honored!

Honestly, I hardly remember because I did this so long ago... but I think I used a dull x-acto blade that I was going to have to replace anyway.
