Techniques: Spray paint tin, stamp using the alcohol technique. I tied the gold cord (SU) around the tin cover. I punched holes into the tin cover and added the hodgepodge hardware and the name with the brads.

Wow, I can't believe no comments on this -- I think this is a great idea and I like how you did it (never thought about punching holes into tin, have a problem thinking out of my box). Thank you for sharing this.

Thank you so much for the kind words. It was actually lots of fun. I needed some thing to put my chipboard letters/shapes that I was accumulating. I found these two tins. They had some thing on them already. I spray painted the tins with white craft spray paint. It dried very quickly. It left a smooth finish, great for the alcohol inks.
You imagination takes over after a while. I can't wait to do more. I tell my friends and family, don't throw those empty tins away. They're recycleable!
