Fall Altered ATC Tin

Hi, Crafty Friends!! Can you believe that it is FALL already?? Time is flying by so fast this year. I wasn't even ready to say goodbye to summer... but it came and left in the blink of an eye! Well, that just means were are just that much closer into the holiday season. Bring on the sweater wearing weather!!

Today I have a fall themed project for you! This awesome little favor tin that can also double as a ATC holder!! You get  two-fer today! Yay!!

Her is the list of supplies I used to decorate/alter my tin...

Cut'n'boss (Craftwell)
Teresa Collins Pocket Dies-Thankful (Craftwell)
eBrush (Craftwell)
Xyron 3" Sticker Maker
Xyron 1.5" Sticker Maker
Sharpie Markers- Green, Lt. Green, Orange, Lt. Orange, Brown
Patterned Paper (DCWV)
Cardstock- Orange, Rust, Lime Green, Craft
Card Tin
Hemp Twine
3D Laquer

 First, I flipped my tin upside down onto the back side of my paper and traced all around the tin. I used my tin as a template. Then I used my scissors to cut out the traced shape. Next, I cut out 4 strips 1/4"wide by 4 inches long.

 I ran my 1/4" strips through my Xyron "X" (aka 1.5" Sticker Maker) and ran my bigger rectangular piece through my 3 " sticker maker. Once my pieces were through I peeled them and stuck them directly onto my tin. The main panel went on top and the 1/4" strips were added just above the lip of the lid.

 I used the large leaf from the Teresa Collins Thankful set and cut it out in 3 different colors (yellowy-orange, rust, and lime green colored cardstock) . I used my Cut'n' boss machine with the following sandwich combonation:

From Bottom to Top

Then I used my ebrush machine and shaded them to get more depth. One of the great things about ebrushing my pieces is that it allows your pieces the ability to be molded... I curled my leaves using my fingers, gently bending them... and they maintained their shape!! Kind of reminds me of how hairspray works! LOL

I also used the Thank You die from the Thankful set. Then I  ebrushed it, and trimmed and separated the words.

Finally I glued ally pieces onto my tine using 3D Laquer. I also tied and attached a hemp twine bow to the stems of the leaves, securing it with more 3D Laquer.

And here is my finished box...

You can really see the bends and curves in the pics below.

I absolutely LOVE how this tin turned out! These will be great asThanksgiving favors!

I hope you enjoyed today's project!!
Until next time...

Happy Crafting!!
