What a little spray paint can do – a gift card holder.

Lookie what I made with spray paint and an Altoids tin! It’s a gift card holder for that special or not-so-special someone in your life. All I mean is it can be an impersonal gift. I mean, they are still special, but . . . you know.

This is just a a preview; you’ll have to go over to Your Holiday Style to see the project tutorial. My project was chosen by Krylon to featured on the front page of Your Holiday Style – one of their sites dedicated to sharing cool spray painted holiday projects. Click below to be taken directly to my project.


So I’m in this bloggie friend/support group called Crafterminds, and we are all featured today.  Here are some of the other delights from my Crafterminds cohorts that you can find at the Krylon site:

Sweet Apothecary Jar by Heather from Dollar Store Crafts

Time Capsule Ornie from Beckie at Infarrantly Creative

Burlap & Chalkboard Christmas Bags from Jen at Tatertots and Jello

I suggest heading over to Your Holiday Style to see some additional fun and crafty projects.  I’m loving spray paint lately – I think you will too.

    Love it, Amy! I have an empty Altoids tin just waiting for me to transform it! Never thought to paint it though.
