Cheers for Unscripted Sketches!

Happy Saturday everyone, which means it's time for another Unscripted Sketch! In a time crunch this week I grabbed an empty Altoid tin and discovered that small projects come together least with this fabulous sketch it did!

The tin and ribbon caught my eye amid my craft mess, so choosing the other colors was a no brainer. I'll need to be eating many more Altoids to create more of these....or looking for people who already have them on a regular basis. Like I told the rest of the Unscripted DT, either way it will be a quick creation and super minty breath!

Here's the inside of the tin:

I loved this sketch and my gift card holder so much that I had to make a matching card to go with it. On this card I used 3 buttons because of the Button, Button challenge over at Stampin' Out Alzheimers, a fundraiser near and dear to my heart.

Check out what the rest of the DT did by clicking on their links on my side bar. Be sure to check out all the sketch and fabulous inspiration over at Unscripted Sketches, and I hope you find time to play along this week.

  1. Fabulous idea!! The tin is perfect, and the matching card is awesome! Great job!!

  2. Oh totally cute tin and the card to go with it is SUCH FUN!

  3. I just love these little tins...they are so much fun to work with!

  4. What terrific, fun, cheery and bright colors you used on the tin and card. How funny that you find the tin project so quick. I have some of those tins and I have had the hardest time actually finishing one. I guess because I was trying to put too much detail on such a small "canvas".

  5. What a great idea! Love the matching card too! Fab colors! Looks so springy!

  6. I love that you reused an Altoid tin here! Its green, its free (well, semi for the mints, free for the crafting!), and its been decorated with bright, fun colors!! :>:>

    Caryl, may I extend a personal THANK YOU to you for teaching!! Good teachers are simply priceless and cherished for a lifetime. I know mine still are! :>

  7. How adorable is this! So creative! Love it!
