It's In The Can...........

Hi everyone, I can't believe how fast the weeks pass. I've had a lot of birthdays this month and that's meant lots of card making and gift wrapping. So with that in mind, todays project is a gift tin.
I have a few of these tins at home and found them perfect for small gifts. I hope this gives you some inspiration to use up some of your scraps of decorative papers and stamps to make a difference to a gift.
I've used a decorative paper for the top part of the tin and a lime green bazzill for the bottom part. Once cut to size I stamped the quotes and flowers on the green bazzill card. The stamps are from Sugar and Spice and called Happy Birthday Flower. I then attached the papers to the tin and hid any joins with some ribbon. I finished the tin off with a tag using the same Happy Birthday Flower stamps, edging it with some fabulous glamour dust - a must for any craft box. I also coloured the lid with alcohol ink to keep the colour flowing through.Bye for now and happy crafting P x
