Secrets Tin by Judi Kauffman for The Queen’s Ink

I love covering and decorating tins. Recently, a friend who knows about this hobby of mine surprised me with half a dozen SUCRETS brand cough drop boxes. The lettering on the lid is raised, making it more difficult to camouflage the words, but I figured out a way around the problem: Turn the word into SECRETS!

Here’s how it started:
Here’s how it looks with an E in place of the U. The textured area is a piece of embossed and lightly sanded Shimmer Sheetz backed with double-sided adhesive sheet covering the area below the silver stripe:
Cover the letter U with a narrow blue rectangle, adhered with glue formulated for non-porous surfaces (the tin). Options for the letter E: Use a white sticker. Draw on the blue rectangle with a white opaque ink pen, hand- or die cut a simple sans serif E.

Cover the bottom of the tin with a piece of Shimmer Sheetz (lightly sanded/flat or altered with alcohol inks).
