Just Magnolia Altered Tin

As promised a couple of photos of my graduating son and his girlfriend at their prom. I noticed I put in the uncropped version but isn't set up great. His girlfriend set up this swing for the photos. To night is the exercises and then life will go into Summer mode.

The challenge at Just Magnolia is to alerter a box, bag or can. This is a can that used to hold Prima flowers. I am using it as a gift box holding a grad gift for one of the girls.

I love this stamp of Tilda picking flowers. The butterfly was included in another stamp I order from Pheobe at the Town source for Magnolias. I colored Tilda with my Prismacolored pencils, I did use the light peach marker for the flesh though. I embellished the flowers with stickles and used the butterflies and half pearls on the top edge.

I embellished the outside bottom with DP and them added ribbon with silver edges. I added doves made with the MS bird punch. I made the bow with my bow easy.

This last photo show the layering of the flowers. I love the colors and the stacking of the Prima flowers.
This is the first tin I have ever altered and I am really pleased with it. Now to find more tins. Off to the Graduation Exercises. Talk later.

Your box is so creative and pretty. Now your handsome son and his beautiful date is another story! How wonderful and what memories this will hold. He looks very responsible and intelligent. Many happy wishes his way and a future filled with love and good fortune.
