Altered Tin/Advent Calendar


Elizabeth Carney took the idea of an advent calendar to new highs with this amazing altered tin. Along with various SRM Stickers, Elizabeth used modge podge, Bo Bunny's Father Christmas Collection, die cuts, twine, and buttons. Can you spot the SRM border strip at the top of the container?

Elizabeth says, "I've had this " tea box" from Starbucks for awhile. I brought it home with me one day, knowing that someday I'd create something with it! I created this form of an advent calendar for our family to use each year. It counts down the days until Christmas using scripture to tell the story about Jesus' birth {the reason for the season!}. I really love how it turned out!"
