FTTC77 – Emily’s Pins Challenge



Hello everyone~

It is time for Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge(FTTC77) !  It is the end of the month so we have a challenge host.  This month's host is Emily Keaton.  Emily is challenging us to  use “Pins”!   All kinds of pins will do.  Think stick pins, hat pins, safety pins, straight pins, diaper pins, even mini clothes pins or a brooch-style pin.  We would love to see what you create! 


OK…you’re probably thinking where I used PINS. Since the challenge says “All kinds of pins will do”, I used the clothespins :) Plus, it was so fun to use the tiny clothespin for the last week’s FTTC card and I decided to use them again! I used Cherries & Peaches set with the altered box. The images were colored with Copic MarkersPoppy Collection, Tiger Lily Collection and Evergreen Collection.

I bought these lunch tin boxes for a while ago and they are stored in the cabinet for a long time…maybe too long, lol. I decided to bring them back to light after I read the one of Dare To Get Challenge 2010 over SCS. I also submitted to the couple more challenges for today’s project. There are those challenges…

Here is the image for each box. You can click the photo to see the enlarged image.

You can follow this wonderful tutorial by Emily Giovanni to alter the tin box. My printer is out of ink, so I just used the 1 1/4” square & 1” circle punches to cut out the notch part.

I already sold the cherry tin box :):) and my daughter wants to have the peach one… I could just give it to her but I told she has to earn it with her chores and cleaning up her room ;) Mean mommy, lol!

Oh, Maki!! These lunch boxes are just precious, and, of course, I LOVE your teensy, tiny clothespins!! I loved them last week, too, and was kinda hoping you'd bring them out again. Yay!! So glad you did. You did a super job altering these tins, and your coloring on those FAV fruit images is awesome. Thanks for the beautiful eye candy this morning :)
