I received one a few days ago and the wheels in my head have been spinning trying to imagine how I can transform it into something wonderful. My DH laughed when I told him why I didn't throw the case away but I did the CD.

I always save both - we just made Easter Bunnies with the cd's at the daycare. We've also made flowers, cats, etc... I've seen altered cd's for scrapbooks, but have not yet tried them. Sandy

I did the same. I have never altered a tin before but I think I'll give it a try with this one since it was free...LOL.

Don't feel bad Deb. I started one and messed it up and haven't been to the store to get another one. I don't think mine will be finished until May!

Cathy, I think you should press ahead and work on the tin even if you messed it up! Can it be sanded/scrapped down? How bad can it be? inquiring minds want to know.....

If you really can't eat them in time you could do like my mom, who wanted to do a tin but doesn't eat the mints, and put them in a ziplock bag. That ziplock bag of mints is now in my purse for my kids and she had her tin ready to work on the day after she bought it.

I had to throw it away. I was using stickers and embossing over them and they melted and turned brown! Looked really, really bad. I'll try again next week. :-)

I tried and ended up trashing it. I was embossing and melted and burned the stickers I put on it. Part of the problem was I was trying to finish three different projects at the same time. I'll try again next week.

Oh Cathy, I'm so sorry you had trouble! Even tho the challenge will be "offically over" next week you should still give it a whirl. They are alot of fun, provided you arent working on too many projects at once.
