Blogger's Challenge - this week Alter It!

This week was a fun challenge! We had to alter something - there were some very creative ideas! I have saved these little plastic jars forever, intending on doing something with them, and thanks to this challenge, it finally got done! There was originally spices in them that came in a "Chili Kit" that we got for Christmas one year. Here's the front view:



Here's a view showing the top and the front of the jars. I used Stampin' Up!'s retired Pina Colada Simply Scrappin' kit, some chipboard letters and some Sissix die cuts to decorate them.



Here's the top view. As you can see, I ran out of ideas of what to put in them! I have Brads, Buttons, Clips and one empty one until I decide what to put in it -- any ideas??

Here's a little side view of the pretties that are in the jars! Wow, I had a lot of rhinestone brads!


I'm throwing out a challenge to all of you to alter something - we all have things that we've saved wondering "what could I do with this?".......right? Well, time to do something with it and email me with your altered item and I will post pics of them all. Maybe I'll even have a prize for my faves!

These are delicious! I have a ton of baby food jars, and tubs, in all sizes that might work perfectly to alter and keep my "stray" stuff in. How about putting safety pins in the other jar?
