Paris Themed Altered Altoid Tin


My friend Tootie from Honey Girl Studio recently hosted an altered altoid tin swap on her blog. To my delight, I was partnered with Tootie! This actually made me a bit nervous, to be honest, because this woman is a master of the altered altoid tin! I decided to use a Paris theme for the assemblage that I created to send to her.

Thank you Heather for the wonderful Altoid tin! The Paris theme is sheer genius and the elements all work so well together.

This is beautiful! I can't believe that it was created with a recycled Altoid Tin. Great work of art that would smell good too!
Thanks for sharing.
