Happy New Year!

Hello crafty friends!  How's your 2014 so far?  Mine's been super crazy with a lot of ups and downs - new job (yey!) and my grandma passing away (sob!).  I intentionally didn't post for the whole month of January as I wanted to finish cataloging my stamps.  Yes.  I finally did it.  I have bought so many stamps the past couple of years, but I haven't taken them out of their packaging.  So I told myself I won't post anything until I put them in the right place.  The fun part is seeing all these beautiful stamps that have been in my possession, and now I can't wait to play with them.  The frustrating part is that during the process, I found stamps that I already have and ended up buying again.  Because they were not catalogued.  But those doubles are good reason for some blog candies in the future... yeah!  It's been a while since I gave out blog candy.  

Anyway, for my first post this year, I want to share with you an altered project.  I have been keeping a lot of these candy/gum containers, well, because I wanted to alter them.  This one is a Black Black mint container I bought from Japan.

I peeled off the label, and it gave me a really nice small container, perfect for altering.

I wanted to stick to the black and white color scheme of the container, so I took out a bunch of washi tapes from my stash.

The washi tape adhered really well to the plastic container, and I super love the final product!


The bottom is glitter cardstock punched with Creative Memories circle punch.  It was a perfect size.

Closer look.

I added bling under the cap, making this container extra special.

I have to say that this one is definitely a keeper.  'Til next blog!
