Six Tiny Tins

I began the transformation of six of these six tiny tins by adding my choice of glittered images to the bottoms. (There are six, but here you only see five.)

It took a bit of trial and error to line the inside of the tins. I kept changing my mind about which way the stripes should go and how tall the paper should be.

After which, I replaced the lids and

proceeded to cover the outside of the tins in a similar manner.

Then I added glitter glue for a bit more shiny to the tiny, tiny tins.

The fiddly part was attaching the very clingy fibers (six times!) to the outside once the all the other steps had been completed.

This takes me a lot closer to the finish of this piece – which I hope will happen this weekend!

    1. Hi Mama Bear,

      Yes - I am. I guess I like to see things come together that others are working on and so I suppose I do the same here at bearbits. Glad you like the tin idea - I was inspired by something I saw - on the Internet. Who'd have thunk it?! Ha ha!

      Thanks for stopping by!

    1. Hello Jack and The Clan,

      Yes, fuzzy and furry bits - that are NOT bears! Go figure. Sebastian thinks it's funny to see pink fibers stuck to me all over but then stranger things have happened so what can I say?

      Thanks guys!
