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

Aren't blank mint tins great? They are one of my favorite things to craft because of the countless ways to transform them. This tin has a chipboard facade from Alpha Stamps glued to the front to make a wee house. (I just added siding and shutters.)



The table and chair are made from wire and buttons; one button for the table top, one for the back of the chair, and a fabric button for the seat. I spray painted them white and used acrylic paint to add a pattern on the back of the chair as well as the shutters. Those shutters had been in the stash forever so it was nice to finally have the perfect place for them. There is a shelf inside to hold a few things, and two floral-y lamps made from chipboard shapes. The next tin needs to be a haunted house just to balance out all this pink.

Whatever the question, the answer is always CRAFTING! It's the fix for all the sicks. Makes me feel better every time.

and remember, ALWAYS USE THE GOOD BEADS, YARN, FABRIC!

Love you all, thank you so much for everything. XO

Using buttons for the tabletop & chair seat/back was clever; I haven't ever seen buttons used in that fashion until now, but they're definitely perfect for that.  Lovely design overall!
