Try It On Tuesday - A tin

This week at Try It On Tuesday we had the challenge to alter a tin , and I have to say I am very lucky to help in a chairty shop as I have picked up some lovely tins for this challenge , and eventually I found the one I wanted to play with. And it will be a gift for a friend of mine which I will fill with lots off little gifts , lot better than a gift bag well i think so lol.
OK as its a altered item week we have The Craft Barn as the sponsor
