2nd Altered Jeweler’s Tin

This is the second of the altered tins I’m making for the Naughty Valentine Swap hosted by Alpha Stamps.   The unaltered tin measures approximately 2” wide by 1” deep. 
Just as in the first tin I used a drawer knob as the base.  I painted it silver and added blue German scrap.  On top of the knob I glued a piece of gold filigree to which I added blue and antique gold beads.
I also drilled a hole in the tin just as in the first tin.  It’s through the hole that I inserted the flowers, beading and fan.  I covered the side of the tin with ribbon trim and German Scrap. 
You can find the jeweler’s tin and the collage sheet I used at Alpha Stamps.  Below are the links.
