Altered Items

I've just been venturing into the world of altered items. I haven't done many things but I love seeing what others do and then using it for inspiration. I share more of them in the next few days but his one of the projects I have most recently done... be kind, they were first attempts! : )

This was my most recent creation. I spray painted (actually Josh did!) a cookie sheet black and used the wedding favor canisters from Michael's. I added magnets to the back so they would stick to the pan. I used Modge Podge to attach some paper to the pan and punched the circle from Making Memories christmas paper. Then of course, my fabulous Cricut cut all the numbers for me! I put some M & M's inside!

This is just a closer shot of the canisters:

And then finally, a side view from an angle:

Thanks for visiting!!!


  1. Was this your Christmas countdown? It's so cute!! I've seen those little things used for all the little teeny scrapbook things and hung on a tin sheet on the wall. I love them. I want some. LOL

  2. Yes, it was! It was fun! Have you seen that tin on a wall at MY house??? I'll have to do a post about that!!!

  3. I love that you are blogging about scrap booking, Cyn! Maybe I will get more motivated to do more scrapping of my own. :-) Thanks for sharing ideas with us!

  4. This is an awesome countdown calendar, i love those little tins, so adorable.
