Something altered... suggestions anyone???

After visiting so many wonderful blogs in the last couple of days, I decided to try my hand at something altered.

When stash diving in my boxes of little flowers (here's one)
I came across these forgotten items:
Do you remember when Prima came out with these little tins of paper flowers a few years ago?  I snatched up a bunch on clearance.  Two of the larger round ones have magnets on the back.  I cleaned off the adhesive residue on the front with plain alcohol (my fav  cleaner)

So, this is my first attempt:
(one of the magnet ones)  I'm stuck on these colors, in a good way, because they make me happy.  Why not?  I think that if you click on the picture you'll be able to see the detail better.

So, I would really appreciate some advice on this.  Is it finished?  What does it need?  I'm open to suggestions!

Thanks so much!!!!!!!!!


  1. It's beautiful! I would certainly say it is finished to me!

  3. That is indeed finished and finished beautifully at that!
    Great job!

  4. I would say its finished as well, it is a stunning alteration with many wonderful details.

  5. I agree with the others, it is definitely finished and it is stunning. I would make some more of the same in different colours, I think you have a winning combination here.

  6. Finished? I've no idea, hopeless at that sort of decision! FABULOUS? oh yeah! Great idea, what a fab gift!
    I'm late WOYWW visitng and so am browsing blog posts I wouldn't normally get to,it's wonderful! BUT - I have to be able to see something of your postcard fascinating that pile of boxes became to me when you said what it holds!

  7. I think you have done a fabulous job and I love your color scheme. I remember those tins and how small they are. Your piece is a delicate little treasure. Yes, I think it is finished.


Thank you for your comments!
