Flea Market: old boxes and tins…
Hi there friends!
With the deepest pleasure we present you today our next inspirational blogpost: “Flea Market”.
Our designers looked through goodies which are sold on every flea market in the world, i guess: stylish, eye-catching old boxes and tins!
Yoiu need only a bit of imagination, pair of talented hands and some papers from our “All I Ever” collection and you can get truly amazing, detailed home decorations, which nothing like the “bare” inspirations… Just take a look!
I love romantic trinkets and home decorations which introducing me in a positive mood. The metal box of tea could not stay black of course! A little gesso, some crackle paint and papers from the All I Ever collection – gave him a completely different look, and I must admit that I am very happy with the result.
Here is the metal box”before”:

I altered an old tin – I made a small money-box.
I painted the metal tin with white paint, then I embossed it with tattered rose distress embossing powder. Then I distressed the eges with crackle paint. I added beautiful 7 Dots Studio papers, some jute, flowers, pearls and butterflies. On the top of the tin I added some handmade flowers.

Here is my project for the Altered Tin. I used a metal tin from Graphic 45 and transformed into a pink and feminine keepsake box for my daughter’s treasures and pretty things!! She just loves collecting random things here and there – anything shiny is automatically called a ‘jewel’ of which she has many! What little girl wouldn’t love a prettly little box adorned with beautifully soft patterned papers and lots of pink flowers!?
We hope that our sweet and girly project are inspirational for you – 7DS papers are so versatile and go beautifully with so many projects!! 🙂 Soon we’ll be back with more eye-candy for you – stay tuned!
