Alteroid by Samantha Read

Well I'm still going strong with the current theme and trying new things by altering empty Altoid tins! My first was a couple of weeks ago, it's now another new addiction!
They are a great size to work with similar to ATC size, with the added bonus that when you heat the tin with a heat gun to dry paint etc, a yummy minty smell fills the room.
I couldn't help but reach for my favourite stamp, the ubiquitous Moon Girl, after all tins help you keep important things in mint condition!
I think this would make a lovely gift for a friend. 

Items I used:
Claudine Hellmuth Stuido Paints: Painterly Pink, Traditional Tan, Sky Blue, Landscape Green and Purple Palette

I do hope you like my creation and thank you for taking the time to look, wishing you a lovely day, Sam xxx

* Just one word of warning, Altoids contain Pork gelatin so are not veggie friendly!


  1. I love to alter tins too, as you say Sam they are a great size to work on. I really love what you have done with this one and I am sure Moon Girl loves her new home. X

  2. This is lovely Sam, very very pretty x

  3. How pretty does Moon girl look, whilst she takes a well deserved rest in her lovely altoid tin. xx

  4. Am sure Moon Girl loves her home. Its a smashing altered tin. x
