Challenge Yourself

At Scrappy Frogs Challenge Blog ~this week's challenge was to challenge yourself. Make a project you don't normally make, or use products you don't normally use. Maybe it is something in your stash that you have had forever, and you are "saving" it. Whatever it is. Get outside your comfort zone, and make a project that you don't normally make.

For me, I don't usually make altered items. I love them, but I don't make them as a rule. I thought it would be fun to make some altered tins for gift ideas. I had some Altoids tins that I had been saving in my "it can be used for something" drawer.

The first one I thought would be a fun Spring/Easter gift. I figured fill it with jelly beans or other fun small treats as a nice way to give a little gift to Some"Bunny" Special in your life.

I just loved this stamp from the $1 bin at JoAnn's. This tin, I put some instant flavored coffees and some sweetener packets in it for a fun little friendship gift.

For me this challenge was a lot of fun. I used my new Copic Markers, and did some projects I wouldn't normally do. I hope you enjoyed them, and maybe you will find a fun project like this you want to do as a gift.
