halloween tin swap

Last month I participated in the Bliss Angels Halloween Tin Swap. The tin I made for my partner Marti will probably look a little familiar to you.

It is very similar to the matchbox I made for the Vintage Dragonfly swap. The theme is again Sybilla and Delphine's Apothecarium.

I actually created the tin first and then decided to do the matchbox the same way. For the tin I added the skull to the top then my son suggested I give him a top hat so I made an itty bitty one.

I unhinged the lid so the tin would have two separate pieces. This is the inside of the lid. I lined it with a tapestry fabric and attached a shop sign I created.

This is the inside of the tin with tiny bottles drizzled with beeswax.

The labels are cut from pages of a Portuguese dictionary sent to me by Ana from Scrap de Ana.

Black wired ribbon holds it all together.

And I made a Halloween tag to go along with it too.

Marti sent me a absolutely wonderful tin also.
I will have it up next as soon as I move the pictures over.

Have a wonderful spooky weekend!
