Well let me just say Happy Blogaversary to Jo. 
At the top I had listed all the stop for day 2. If you missed day 1, Head over to Jo's Scrap shack. Be sure you don't miss out on the wonderful creations from day one and enter to win some great things. 

I will confess that I didnt even start my project till Monday morning. And still didnt have an idea what or where the craft project would take me. So... I work better under pressure which is the current song playing.  

I did get my project done. I made an altered tin. This tin which I should have taken photos before and didnt, as just a tin that had chap stick in it from Christmas time. It was light blue with red. The first thing I did was spray painted it black. Then I took some crochet thread and wrapped it around the bottom part of the tin up to where the lid hit when its on. Then I did the same to the lid around the the top. 
The top of the lid I did a sunburst arrangement. The paper is from a stack I found at Walmart. I then added and burlap flower also found at Walmart and a prima flower- that I received from a friend. 

I plan to use this tin for my We R Memory Keepers Fuse tips. 

I hope you enjoyed my project. 
Unto your next stop.

Until Next Time 
Stay Crafty
