Tiny Collage Boxes

Ever wonder what to do with the tiny metal boxes you get supplies in from Maya Road? They are way too cute to toss.

So add some alcohol inks with a brush....since it is a tiny area...add several colors in layers. Then cut an image from Paper Imagery Designs image, add some words, a couple of rub ons and gently push under the metal lip inside the box.

Simple, fun, and a tiny gift box for something special!

Create ART!

Those are awesome! We have some of these tins in square and I have to get some to play with. Thanks for the inspiration. Gonna give some to Samantha to play with, too.
