I was inspired by a wonderful spread in the February Craft Stamper Magazine showcasing altered Altoid candy tins. I’m part of a monthly group at our local art and craft store: Runaway Art and Craft Studio. We take turns selecting a project from the magazine and leading the group in creating it. It was my turn to lead the group and I chose altering Altoid tins with paper napkins. We each took a tin and applied a thin layer of gesso. We cut out small portions of napkins to fit the front and back of the tins and then attached them with gel medium. Once dry, I edged the tin with Staz-On ink on a foam applicator and stamped one of the tins (on the right) with a text stamp in spots. I covered the portion of the tins (without the napkin) with the metallic wax, as well as the wooden hearts. Finally, I applied black Staz-On ink gently on the pearls (right hand tin) for an antiqued look and attached the wooden hearts to the top. Thanks for visiting.

Those are gorgeous, love how you antiqued the pearls too. I just happen to have an Altoid tin here, I may have to give this a try. Wish I was closer to join your group.
