12 Tags of Christmas Altered Tin Top 4, 5 & 6 For the Funkie Junkie Challenge

Three more TIN TOPS  with the 12 Tags of Christmas Tags Challenge over at the Funkie Junkie!

Aside from burning a hole in the top of my wood scrapbook table, these went together nicely! 

Tin Top 4 wood embossed with brown paint & light sanding is BY FAR my favorite.

I made the little framed photo of the log cabin using a large sized silver jump ring that I painted with Ranger Patina which incidentally I bought from the Funkie Junkie's online store

My inspiration was this tag with the pinecone flower which said woods/log cabin/country to me. 

Tin Top 5 was a whole lot of fun too. Who could have thought Washi tape would go so nicely over the original lid and also was modge podge-able. The metal strip came all punched like that and was a recent purchase over at Michaels in the jewelry area. I was able to also add a piece of broken jewelry to both edges in a fit of recycling. ;-) 

Here is the lovely inspiration tag. 

I am pretty happy with this little clock inspired Tin Top 6 with the burgundy bow. I actually painted the top with Perfect Pearls which by the way you can stamp into and it becomes textured. Added a few clock pieces to keep the theme!

And the inspiration tag is below!

I am half done! How exciting! Got little bits and pieces ready for others.

Happy Tuesday!
