The week on the Sarah Kay blog the challenge is *Creative CD Cases*.
I went into slight panic, no-one wants to see how I store my Nestabilities, I have some calendar cases lying around left over from storing clear stamps when I only had a few. I really wanted to use one of those neat little tins that bands chuck out as promos because I have decorated SO many plastic cd cases.
A plain metal case cries out to be altered, out came the good old black spray paint which I thought would look fab if it was dry brushed with silver. Then I had a complete nutty notion to use hot foil but my poor old foil pen just couldn't cope with the size of the tin so I reach for the iron! It wasn't the best idea that I'd ever had, the iron burnt the spray paint! I am so glad that you're unable to smell my project (actually it's fine now but the stench of burning plastic was overwhelming, don't try this at home kiddies). The idea I think would have worked had I not used the spray paint. The tin was gloss lacquered to protect the foil.
Anyway, this little tin come with a foam self adhesive insert which I though would be perfect to poke earrings into as a stocking filler.
