Card Tin

Having been making cards all year long for my granddaughters. Last year I made boxes, but have too many cards this year. Bought a white tin at Michaels and decorated lid and around the box.

When I need inspiration for decorating boxes or tins, can always find some great sketches at Mojo Monday. The sketch used is for week #116 challenge, this was such fun to do and am very pleased with the results.

The papers that were used for the first tin was from Scrapbooks...on the Go! Moments Remembered booklet. Used a corner rounder on the background papers, distressed the edges and also the mats for the circle, to give the tin an aged look. Circle cutting system from Creative Memories was used for the circles. A ribbon bow and charm was also added to complete the lid.

Ribbon was also placed around the tin and using 1 1/2" squares were also placed on the tin. This tin is for my daughter Jamie, she receive a paper box last year, this will be so much better has it will hold all different sized cards.

The second tin was for Katie, she plays the harp, wanted to used sheet music for the background and of course here favorite color of purple. The sheet music and 2 girls on the lid came from
Graphics Fairy. Added purple rhinestones on the corner, Katie will love it, just because of all the purple.

Third tin is for Nicole, her favorite color is pink. You can never have enough pink.

Have opened a can of worms with these tins, want to make one for my other daughter, sister, and myself.
Need to start working on a few more Christmas projects, hope everyone has a crafty day. Please leave a comment, thanks for stopping by today.
