"This beautiful tin was too lovely to just throw away, so I thought I’d decorate it. You never know when you’ll need a little gift box at the last minute. From start to finish this took me around half an hour to complete, so it’s really quick." 

Products Used:

Bazzill Basics Cardstock:

 8-811E French Vanilla 
4-406E Chiffon 


S4-114 Circles Large 
S4-124 Scalloped Circles Large 
S5- 086 Bitty Blossoms 
S5-089 Home Sweet Home 
S5-084 Girlie Grunge Labels 

Other Materials Used: 

Authentique Blissful 6x6 pad 
Gel medium 
Frayed Burlap Distress Ink for sponging

Step One:

 Gather your supplies.

Step Two:

After sanding the tin lightly to give it some tooth for the adhesive to grab on to, cover the sides of the tin with strips of patterned paper. My preferred adhesive for this type of project is Gel Medium.  

Step Three:

The scalloped circle I cut didn’t quite cover up the little gaps so the tin was still visible under the paper. I simply cut a second scalloped circle, and moulded the scallops over the edge of the tin.

Step Four:

Cut a circle and scalloped circle to sit on the top of the tin, and adhere these in place.

Step Five:

Cut some leaves from the Bitty Blossoms set, and curl them over the end of a brush handle. Adhere the leaves to the top of the tin.

Step Six:

Cut some of the roses from the Bitty Blossoms set and assemble. Adhere these in place over the leaves.

Step Seven:

Cut a label from the Home Sweet Home set, and adhere a couple of the words from the Girlie Grunge set to it. Sponge the edges with some brown ink to bring out the detail, and adhere to the tin.
