Santa's Here! Altoid Tin Ornament

We had a little Vintage Christmas Altered Altoid Tin swap on Craftster, and here's an ornament I made for my swap partner. I painted a lightweight wooden frame and added few rhinestones and a pretty metal flower. The little girl was adhered with foam squares, so she is raised up a bit from the background. It's hard to tell in the photo, but the tree is actually a bottle brush tree, decorated with crystal stars and red rhinestones. Santa's hat has a tiny pom pom at the tip.

And the back. I love this candy striped paper and the "Night Before Christmas" excerpt from Graphic 45. Almost all of the supplies for this ornament tin came from Alpha Stamps. They have tons of great supplies for Christmas crafting!


  1. Awesome tin! Had to laugh because the back of my tin doesn't exactly have The Night Before Christmas...but a twist on it. You always set the bar WAY to high for the rest of us! ;)
