The Magical Tin of Mystery! *gasp*

Sometimes an idea for a project comes to you and almost puts itself together and sometimes you have to practically rip your hair out to get anything completed. Lucky for me, the following was the former and not the latter.

Behold, the altered Nintendo DS game tin!

Hmm, not too interesting you say? Ah ha! You've fallen right into my trap! I purposely left the outside of the tin a bit drab all so that you would faint in delight at your first look at the inside! Prepare to hit the floor!

Well, I think it's dramatic anyway. :D Here's a close up of the inside of the lid:

And here's a closer view of the inside of the tin itself:

I was so happy with how quickly this came together. I just love when that happens!!! What's your Saturday looking like?

**Don't forget that Toot will be on America's Funniest Videos tomorrow, 3/28 on ABC at 7:00 PM EST. I'm not sure how much they'll use of our clip but just look for the baby getting the crap scared out of her by a jack in the box (which I'm hoping will break soon so I can alter it. :P)


  1. Haha! You're so funny! :) Loving the crackle paint on the cover and the bold colors inside the tin! Always nice to have a great idea and carry it through! Have a wonderful Saturday Maggi! :)

  2. It's very glamorous, Maggi! I like that it's very vintage and quiet on the outside, but then when you open it...BAM! Vivid color and girl power! Nice job! :) Theresa

  3. Fun stuff!

    Happy SITS Saturday Sharefest!
