    Chunky Gothic Border
    Wow! What’s this? There’s a new Chunky Gothic Border. (The name kinda says it all! A short border based on a Victorian design. 6″ long and designed so multiple strips can be butt up against each other for a longer strip.) AND a related new Window Box with Gothic Facade. (A 1:12 scale flower box plus a gothic facade.) AND: Why didn’t I think of this before?! ALL Gothic & Wrought Iron items are on SALE! Beside the 2 new items shown at left and right, see below for more info on the sale!

    How sweet is that Night Witch Altered Tin by Design Team Member Kristin Batsel!

    This was a Halloween project from 2017, back when the Altoids Tin Insert Frames – Wrought Iron were first announced (psst… they’re also part of the flash sale).

    You can read more about the project in the original blog post. (Good tips are there, too, like: “to make the image more dimensional, I cut out the witch’s arms and the cat from a second, identical image.”)

    I’m including everything from Kristin’s supply list in today’s Giveaway! Three of the items are shown below, but there are 8 items still available (not bad for a project from 4 year’s ago).

    To enter the Night Witch Altered Tin Giveaway drawing all you have to do is leave a comment BELOW on this blog post TODAY or TOMORROW (the deadline is 11:59 pm PST, MONDAY Night, April 26, 2021).

    And tell me: what will you make with these supplies?

    Don’t forget to leave your (hello!) correct email address, too, so I can contact the winner; your email address does not need to be made public. Note: I’m offering free shipping, too, but only within the USA. International shipping will still apply.

    Please be patient! Spammers try to post crap here a lot so comments are moderated. So if you don’t see your post in the comments section, be patient and check back in a few hours before re-posting it, please!
