How to alter a metal tin

While out shopping at Dollar Tree I found a set of two metal tins. When I saw these I knew I could alter these with a few supplies I already had on hand.

Supplies used in How to alter a metal tin:
Glossy Sapphire Rinea foil
Spellbinders Circle Die
Butterfly Die
Calico Collage Spring Peacock Journal Kit
Calico Collage Spring Peacock Domino images
Metal Tins – Dollar Tree
Brutus Monroe Detail Ink-Raven
Vagabond Machine Inspired by Tim Holtz or other like die cutting machine
Self-adhesive Rhinestones
Glam from Tattered Angels, Clear, and Chandelier
Paint brush

How to alter a metal tin

I began but selecting a page from the Spring Peacock journal kit from Calico Collage. Once I had a page selected I used my Vagabond and Spellbinders circle die to cut out circles.

Selected images from the Spring Peacock Domino digital images from Calico Collage, trimmed off the white edges.

Die cut a beautiful butterfly out of the Blue Rinea foil using my Vagabond.

Using Glam from Tattered Angels I painted the back of the circle and placed it on the top of the metal tin. Applied glam to the domino-sized peacock image and added to the top of the circle.

So that the butterfly wouldn’t lift and get damaged I applied glam to the back and then placed it on the top of the other images.

Glam dries pretty quick. Using the Chandelier Glam from Tattered Angels I then coated the top of the tin.

Lastly, I applied a few self-adhesive rhinestones to the butterfly and off to one side.

I just love how the images sparkle because of the Chandelier Glam from Tattered Angels. These altered metal tins will make a great gift. I’m thinking of adding some candy and maybe a piece of jewelry inside.

How to Strip and Remain a Lady

While the men in our lives would love to see a “strip show” that isn’t what this article is about. Instead, It’s about How to Strip quilt. I’ve made a few and here is my experience.

I’m sharing my experience with Strip quilting.

A couple of months ago I went to Threads of Tradition in Yukon, OK to purchase some fabric and while I was there.3 yard Pattern QuiltRocky one of the wonderful ladies that works there asked me if I picked up the pattern for the 3 yard quilt. I had not, so Rocky and then Ann started showing me examples and explaining the very simple instructions. I did a quick search on the internet and the original pattern was from Wood Valley Designs. Rocky and Ann made a photocopy of the pattern they had and I went home to sew…

How to Strip pattern tells you to buy 1 yard of each fabric. I started to do the math and decided that I really didn’t need a full yard of each fabric and began pulling fabric from my stash to make the first quilt. The fabrics I wanted to use were pieces that were left over from other projects or fabrics that I bought because they were a remnant or on sale. I quickly realized that I didn’t have enough of one of the fabrics, but I really liked the combination I had come up with so I did some more digging in my stash and found a piece of black fabric that I could cut into eight 1 1/4 inch strips. I was in business. The light pink flower fabric I cut into 2-inch strips. The other two fabrics I had enough to cut the correct size.

Once I had all of the fabrics cut I laid them out in the order to be sewn on my cutting table and took my time sewing each strip together since I had altered the pattern a little. I didn’t want to mess this up!

It didn’t take me very long to finish the top of this quilt! I was so excited that I started pulling fabric making piles of three so I could make more. Now I have made a dozen quilt tops! These are going to be most of the Christmas presents I give out this year. I like the size of this lap quilt. It is perfect for taking on a car trip, to sit on the sofa and cuddle with your pet or even at the office to lay on your lap. I’ve gotten lots of compliments on my little quilts. I hope you enjoy stripping too. Just be careful when you tell your husband or friends, hey I’m going stripping… They may not understand…

My hope is that you enjoyed this blog about How to Strip. Please feel free to share with your friends. And do come back and visit again.
