Garden Glacier Treasure Tin

Howdy.  I had a lot of fun creating a few more treasure tins.  The tins aren't actually Altoid tins, they are jus the same size (3 3/4" x 2 1/4").  I use chalk paint to paint them.  I use three different grits of sand paper and a wet sponge to distress them.  Once I am finished distressing them, I apply by hand, a cream sealant.  That way the tins are protected against any more distressing.
This tin, I painted a pale blue color (glacier) and created it for a girl who loves her garden.  {smile}

and the outside

The wheel handle is actually screwed to the top of this tin.  I used my husbands tools, to knock the hole through the lid, to tread the wheel handle to the top of the tin.  I added some various pattern papers and a few embellishments to create a pretty treasure tin!  I added three tiny paper blossoms to the neck of the handle wheel, to help soften the over all look.
This tin is for sale in my Etsy shop, HERE.  Remember, if you want something custom made, please convo me, and let me know what you are looking for.  Please allow me a chance to create something beautiful and unique just for you!
