Shabby Chic Painted Altoid Tin and Tag

Hello Friends!!
Heather here and today I am sharing a tag with you that I created for the galz at the Gecko Galz Retreat that I went to in Texas this past weekend.  I also have an altered painted tin to share.  Both with just a bit of Really Reasonable Ribbon goodies!!

On my tag I used my favorite Moss green LeavesBaby Pink Mulberry Roses, Light Pink Circus dots grosgrain, Tombow Foam Tabspink baker's twine, Scor TapeRosemary crochet lace, 1/4 natural crochet lace and pink diagonal ribbon (inked with vintage photo....I didn't have frayed burlap with me so all pieces were inked with the vp).  I designed this tag special for the girls as gifts at the retreat....I will have a YouTube video coming soon....this time using some other fabby ribbons from Really Reasonable Ribbon.

Above you can see how I used the tombow foam tabs to elevate my center focal floral frame and rose border at the bottom.  I just tucked the Circus dots under the roses with the Scor-Tape then added the crochet lace on top of that.  I also added the circus dots at the top of the card (the dots were just covered in the bottom piece).  Close up of the bottom.

I used the moss green leaves under my bird image and then applied the mulberry rose.  The antique button was tied with the baker's twine.
Here is my tin.

I used the Bow It All tool and Old Willow Organza to create my lovely double bow.
Look at the side.

Here is a peek at the inside.

I hope you enjoyed my post today!
Thank you for visiting us at Really Reasonable Ribbon!!


  1. Heather, that painted tin is gorgeous! I am fighting the urge to feel jealous over the fact that you can paint so well. I also really love the vintage vibe in the tag.

  2. Your tag and tin are beautiful!

  3. Heather this is so pretty... You put so much work into it and it really shows. Love it :)


We'd love to hear what you have to say
