Altered Prima Tin

I have participated in numerous flower swaps on the (scrap) Beach and now I am faced with the dilemma of having several bins of flowers to use. My goal is to start using them on my projects and stop hoarding them for the "perfect" project or layout. Every project and layout is special and I will start using them now! This first project is an altered Prima Tin. I think it had some mini flowers or something like that in it. My sister, Sandy had purchased them and gave me the empty tins. The flowers I am using on it are the ones I created for the February swap. I have always tried to make my flowers so all someone has to do is pull them off and put them on a project!

I filled the tin with my mixture of lip balm...this is the recipe
1/4 cup of cocoa butter
1 tbls vitamin E oil ( I add more in the winter time)
1 tbls glycerin

melt these in a glass measuring cup and pour into containers of your choice.
