altered trinkets tin

This is a "Trinkets Tin" I put together.
Trinkets Tin
I dusted off several of the tins I've collected over the years after being inspired by the Fall in Love with Buttons Swap, in which we decorated an Altoids tin and filled it with fall themed buttons.

I filled this tin with a few buttons in my favorite color scheme- black and white, pewter charms and other like trinkets.

I was thinking making one like this would be sweet in Christmas colors stuffed in the stocking of fellow crafter.

See more altered, art tins here.


  1. What a great idea for a present. You have got some really lovely buttons, I dont seem to be able to get anything like that over here in England

  2. I'm so glad to hear you were inspired by that swap! I'm having a quiet Monday, too, with my teenager home from school, sick.

  3. Your little altered tin and its contents are lovely. This truly would make an excellent gift. Blissful inspirations...

  4. Hi Jessica,

    What a sweet altered tin and will be lovely for Christmas gifts.
    Enjoy the time off with your girls and wishing you a happy Thanksgiving.


  5. Very Creative and cool! Love the trinkets. HugZ, Jean
