Bring on the Bling

by - October 14, 2013

I really love embellishing old tobacco tins.  I used to collect them so I have a nice stash of them just waiting to be transformed.  The first one I did was for Halloween.  My second one has more of a Frenchy touch.

I broke out the Mod Podge and some vintage sheet music to start.  I cut my sheet music to size and then Mod Podged it on.  Once that was dry, I added one of my favorite images from The Graphics Fairy to the front.
On the top, I added some vintage lace with fabric glue.  I love working with tea-stained seam binding so I, of course, had to add a bow.  The middle was missing a little something so I added the crown charm with a rhinestone.
A pretty rhinestone button attached to the seam binding adds just the right amount of bling.
The faux dried flower and grungy clip (maybe to hold a picture?!) were the finishing touches.

I think my next one will have more of an Xmas touch to it.
