"A Visit From Santa" Altered Tin

Tim Holtz has a line of tins that are not only deeper than Altoids tins, they're holiday themed! Of course I had to get my hands on the Christmas set. The outside of the tin was so perfect and retro looking that I toyed with the idea of just leaving it "as is", but at the end of the day, I couldn't help but add just a few silver snowflakes.

On the inside, I used images from the "Christmas Trees" collage sheet (from Alpha Stamps) to create a sweet little scene. I used foam tape to give the scene dimension, and added a couple of tiny wrapped packages (tutorial here). Silver tinsel frames the scene nicely.

The images on the left of the tin came from separate collage sheets, which are included in the supply list below. Ho ho ho, little girl- better get back to bed if you want Santa to leave something under that tree!
