How to Alter an Altoid Tin with Gypsy Soul Laser Cuts

Disclaimer Notice: I’ve received products/compensation as part of the GSLasercuts Design Team. This project however, is 100% my own project! Some of the links in this post are affiliate links. I explain more HERE!. .

Today I am sharing with you how to alter an Altoids Tin using some fabulous Gypsy Soul Laser Cuts Chipboard pieces made just for that.

Begin by covering the sides of an Altoids Tin with pattern paper.

Adhere pattern paper to inside covers of the Altoids Tin Book Cover. Adhere Altoids Tin to inside of back cover.

Decorate the inside of the Altoids Tin using pattern paper.

Cover the Altoids Insert Frames Scalloped with pattern paper; adhere to top of prepared Altoids Tin Book Cover. Add fussy cut pieces to front of the Altoids Insert Frames Scalloped.

Repeat with pattern paper to the inside of the Altoids Tin.

Add pocket tag to inside of Altoids Tin.

 Add a few white pearl gemstones to the inside and outside trim of Altoids Tin.

Paint Round Frame With Dragons with distress paint; dry. Add to top of chipboard piece; adhere to top of prepared Altoids Tin Book Cover. Add small flowers to top of Round Frame With Dragons.

Paint corners from the Wrought Iron Set with distress paint; dry. Adhere to front of prepared Altoids Tin Book Cover. Add small chipboard button with twine bow along with more small flowers.

I hope you start keeping your Altoids Tin and created a few upcycled pieces with them using Gypsy Soul Laser Cuts Supplies. Hugs Pam
