Decorated Tin















This is a little covered tin with a matching gift card, made in Perfect Plum and Elegant Eggplant. I covered the top of the tin with DSP from the Paper Stack and made the 3D flower with the Blossom Party die in Perfect Plum and Elegant Eggplant. I put a River Rock leaf spray behind the flower, cut with the Little Leaves Sizzlits die.The card is simply made with a strip of matching DSP and a single fower from the Blossom Party die, with a sentiment stamped in Elegant Eggplant. I transformed my tin into a mini scrapbook with photos of my grandchildren but it would make a nice container if you were giving money as a gift and you could decorate the inside of the tin as well if you wanted to. 
The tin that I used was a new one bought specifically for the job but you can transform a used container (there are several tins around that contain sweets) with a bit of DSP and maybe some ribbon so, before you confine things to the bin, take a look at them and it's amazing what you can do!
