Her Royal Cuteness! Altered Tin Can Bag

The Artful Bag Challenge
Through the One World One Heart Event I came across a beautiful blog
"Frosted Petunias" (what a cute name hugh?)
And while browsing that wonderful blog I came across her Artful Bag Challenge. It is an ongoing monthly bag challenge with recurring themes.
Sounded like lots of fun so while snowed in and in between napping while I was sick I made up a little bag out of a medium sized tin can...
Things I incorporated to make this tin can into an "Artful Bag" were...
scrapbook paper, acrylic paint, distress ink, vintage photo, antique sheet music, tea dyed handkerchief, metal handle off of an old tea pot that got broken last week (how "HANDY" LOL), tiny vintage buttons, piece of lace, torn fabric strips, Sharpie, white paint pen.
I'm going to let my youngest daughter have it, because she is "Her Royal Cuteness".

Thespa, 'Her Royal Cuteness' is tooooo cute!! I love your use of the tin and the handle from the tea pot that just happened to break makes the piece. Your combination of whimsy and vintage is always spot on. Love love it and your daughter will too! Thank you for sharing. So glad you decided to come and play. :)
