Altered Tin Tart Banner

Hey Y'all! Happy Saturday to you! I hope you are enjoying a wonderful weekend! I'm here with you on this chilly day to share an altered project I have created for my holiday home using goodies from Momenta. I have created a banner out of tin tart pans that you can find in any craft store. These little tins are used with candles and come in an array of sizes, shapes, and colors. They are so fun to work with and affordable! I plan on hanging this banner on my front door for the month of December/January. I used the tins to spell our our last name. Here is what I will be sharing with you...

"Gandy" Tin Tart Banner
Supplies Used
Patterned Paper, Stickers: Momenta
Cardstock, Ribbon: The Paper Studio
Chipboard Sticker: American Crafts
Laminator: Purple Cows Inc.
Hole Punching Tool: Crop A Dile
Circle Cutter: Creative Memories
Adhesive: Helmar
 Here is what the tins looked like direct from the store. I purchased these at a local discount store for $1 a piece, so really inexpensive.
 Next, I picked out some winter time patterned paper from Momenta and coordinating cardstock. Although we do have a glass/screen door protecting our wooden front door where I will hang this banner, I wanted to make sure that the paper I used would stay safe in the outdoor elements. So I used my laminator to laminate the patterned paper and the cardstock to seal it.
  I used my circle cutter to cut the laminated sheets of patterned paper/cardstock into circles for the center of my tin tart pans.
I used a strong liquid adhesive to adhere my circles onto the pans. I then embellished them with stickers. After I finished my embellishing, I used my Crop-A-Dile tool to punch a hole in each side as shown below:
 I used ribbon to string the tin tart pans together and voila'! A personalized decoration for our home!
  I love the paint effect these pans came in. It added so much color/texture to the project and I didn't have to do anything. I used the Momenta Crimped Red Alphabet Stickers to spell out our last name to mimic the crimped edges of the pans.
 Aren't these shiny crimped alphabet stickers from Momenta great?! I absolutely love 'em!
 I used an assortment of Momenta B&B Stickers to jazz up some plain chipboard mitten stickers.
I hope you have enjoyed this project!
Thanks for dropping by my blog! I hope to see you again really soon!
Happy Holidays!!!
Pin It!
