Halloween Altered Tin For Teacher

Ok, we are really gearing up for Halloween here, and I wanted to give something nice to my youngest's teacher, because she has just been so great with him so far this year, and he really adores her!  My friend and DT sister, Jane posted an awesome tutorial yesterday, and I couldn't wait to try it, because it is just perfect for what I needed.  Thank you so much Jane for the wonderful step-by-step tutorial that made this project idea so much easier for me. 

Who would have thought that this little container that used to hold a little cinnamon treat would turn into a special gift for teacher?  I added the little teacher goodies and wrapped it in a Halloween treat bag that I used for all the other kid's treats in the class too and then put a big festive bow with some curly ribbon on it and he is set to go now. 

What a fun idea that I am so glad to have discovered and will probably be doing for some other holidays and occasions too. 

Pop over to Jane's blog or to the Midnight Madness blog to see this tutorial on how to make your own altered container. 

Thanks for taking a few moments to look at my project today.  I would  love to hear what you think. 

Have a lovely day!

Challenges for this project are:  Creative Belli
