It's been a hot minute since we had an altered tin swap. I was thinking of one where we remove the lids, so we end up with an open tin for display, something like this:


Everyone could choose a few theme ideas, and your partner would craft to your theme. Like it?

Like it.

Also, really like the hand holding the jammy dodger like cookie.  I want to crawl inside that tin.  And eat that cookie.

I've never met you in person, but I'm pretty sure you're too big to squeeze into that tin. And the tart is made of resin.

Not your day. Cheesy

Well, if you provided a helpful bottle labeled 'Drink me', I could shrink down to fit inside the tin.  Geez rack!

I think I will. It will have to be late May or June; I have a lot of travel coming up.

It's not that I don't want to swap, it's that I often don't have time.  But feel free to ask (especially if it's one that's not too time consuming).

I do love altered tins. That example is terrific too Grin I'd definitely be open to an open tin guideline. I have a few that I have received that way but have never made one like that.
