Altered Lunchbox

I ordered 2 lunchbox tins a couple months ago when I saw a couple done by my crafty friends. They were just lovely. After I got them I just kept looking at them. Thinking they'd be really difficult to alter and I wanted to wait until I had time to tackle them. I saw all those curves and angles. Scary. Well, I saw a "how to" on Splitcoaststampers in the resource section and thought that looks pretty easy. It's really a few rectangles and a corner rounder. I don't think I've ever used Modge Podge, but I used it on this. So, I knocked it out Friday night. I let it dry and tied some ribbons on it. I could keep decorating, but I just love it the way it is. I put the last 4 months of Christmas Card Challenges cards in it and it's already nearly full. Thank goodness I bought 2 tins. They will hold my cards in style this year.
