Witches in the Air Tin
 Using a licorice tin purchased at a thrift store (5 for $1.99!!) I covered the top and bottom with the BINGO card from the Altered Artifacts sheet.  I also used the Witch inside from the Witching Hour sheet set.
Fallen Angel ATC



 I covered a 2 1/2" x 3 1/2" piece of chipboard with the Chicago Public Library Card from the Altered Artifacts, as well as the Angel Wings. Poe came from the Bump In The Night Collage Sheet Set.

Christmas BINGO Hanging





 I used the BINGO card from the Altered Artifacts sheet, as well as the image of the girl from the Old Fashioned Christmas Collage Sheet Set.

Vintage Card Basket

 Using the image of the girl from the Altered Artifacts sheet, I made this small version of the vintage crocheted card baskets.  So cute!

  10. Jess...love your creations!! LOVE the tin and ATC!! SERIOUSLY...OMG...I LOVE that little crochet basket. I must have about 6 vintage ones made of old Christmas cards that I have found at either yard sales or the antique shop. I have wanted to make one, but wasn't sure how to go about it. So if you got a tutorial...or can send me a link...I don't crochet...but I will learn it to make one of these :0)
    Hugs!!
