This week the folks over at the Cosmo Cricket blog challenged readers to create an altered tin. For every project linked up, they will donate a can of food and $5 to their local food bank. Sounded like a great idea to me, so I got out my Social Club collection and got started!
First of all, I don't drink, so I may be totally off on what is hip amongst those who enjoy cocktails. This dapper man seemed like a great party host, so I ran him through the printer and printed Shaken or stirred? on his banner. I dressed him up with a couple of martini stickers and an olive border. He makes a great cocktail stirrer holder!
I fussy cut a couple of olives from a print, glittered them like crazy, and adhered them to a plastic cocktail sword.
This is the tin that I started with. It sits about 5" tall and is about 2.5" in diameter.
Now what is a non-drinker and her family to do with a container of cocktail stirrers? Suggestions welcome. :)
