This is the first day of this month's Mark's Finest Papers a Heinrich company blog hop. Today I want to share this very easy altered tin. You can use any tin or box you like.

I do not own a die cut machine. So when you see things used on my cards are altered items it means I had to borrow a machine or Frankenstein my creation! This one was Frankensteined! Hee!

I used the circles from a card that was sent to me to cover the top of the prima tin. I stamped the image and colored with pencils. It was cut out and popped with dots.
This card was easy and fast. I cut the hole in the paper for the see thru window. Then, I used a pencil to mark the oval. I stamped in the sentiment and erased the oval.

The background was stamped with the larger image in VersaMark to get the designer paper look.

Good Luck on the hop!

  1. Love the tin and the Frankenstein reference! LOL Way too funny. Seriously though, awesome samples. I know a few good ways to use that tin, so I'd better start altering my extras really soon.
