Altered Die lunch box

Altered lunch Tin_Sak 001

Last Wednesday I showed you how I store my Cuttlebug Dies. I hadn't altered the lunch tin yet, so here it is. You can see the inserts for the lunch tin here

Make it work Wednesday #8 The dp's are Basic Grey Aged & Confused as well as Boxer. The ribbons are Basic Grey Recess collection except for the

burgandy stripe which is K&Co. I used several sizes of circle punches, metal edge tags and metal typewriter key tags for the letters. The micro small tan brads are really hard to handle, but I got them on there.

The brackets are an image from Innovative Stamp Creations woodgrain sheet. They were stamped on lightweight chipboard, cut out and painted with Tim Holtz antique linen crackle paint. I sponged some distress ink on them in faded jeans and walnut stain. The words are also Innovative Stamp Creations from the ATC Elements II sheet. I stamped them in Versafine Onyx Black and embossed them with Detail Black EP. The philosophy tag is from Tim Holtz's idea-ology collection. Oh, almost forgot the border around the top of the tin which are die cuts from Spellbinders shapabilities Symbology die. I ran those through my Xyron with a 1 sided adhesive cartridge. Have a great Sunday, I am off to stamp some more!
