Dollar Find Friday with Karen

Happy Friday everyone! Join us right here at the TSG Forum for our weekly Friday Night Chat!!
Everyone is welcome and we love to meet new people :)

Hi everyone!  It's been so much fun creating little things for you while I was Trendsetter of the Week and I hope you enjoyed my projects as well.  I'm finishing off my week with Dollar Find Friday and I think you'll like this one as much as I did!  My dollar find comes from my favorite dollar shopping store - Target.  You know, the Target dollar spot?  Yep.  My kids had fun shopping there with me too! 
I found this tin bank canister and I'm all about altering tins, so I grabbed it and threw it in my cart (along with Pop Rocks, Alien Goo, a squishy ball, and some plastic bowls - got to love that $ Spot!)

I covered the tin in some old SU! paper and then added some accents and elements from Out of This World.
I started by stamping the moon 3 times in Memento Tuxedo Black and colored it with Copic Markers.  I cut each moon out and glued it to the canister and then added more images from the same set - the space man, the alien, and the space ship. 
The planets and stars border I added to the rim of the lid is also a stamp that I colored with Copics.  Such a sweet bank for a little boy and next time we go to the $ Spot, my son can pay for MY goodies.  haha! 

Have a fantastic Friday and thanks for stopping by -

  1. Awesome job altering that tin, it's adorable!
