Altered Tin - H R Giger

I bought my son some different flavoured vaping liquids for his birthday and decided to make a gift box for them. I got slightly carried away and altered a tin ... as you do !!!

The tin I bought a long long time ago and it was pink and it did have a handle on it, but I didn't like it so I took it off and replaced it with a chain that I fixed on with screw brads (my Dremel came in handy for drilling the small holes for the brads to go through). I removed the paint from around the edges that wouldn't be covered with my Dremel, it gave it a nice satin look. I covered it first with Basic Grey Sugar Rush Fire Ball paper, and the images which are H R Giger's artwork were printed on to acetate. I made a bottle holder inside, and the bottles are held in place on the little shelf I made with cut down cocktail stick tubes ( I don't throw anything away, you never know when it'll come in handy! ) I won't bore you with any more details, as it's pretty much self explanatory.
Thank you for looking and keep smiling :)
