If you watched our UStream presentation last night, you saw me go through the steps for this holiday gift tin and gift! If you missed it, you can see it again here. I will just share some of the close up images for this project. I love these little tins and was lucky to find some at my LSS that someone collected. They are empty cigar tins from the Dominican. I bet Altoid tins or other metal container would work just as well!
Here is the tin opened and you can see that I covered the lid and base with paper. A corner rounder was perfect to help them fit nicely inside. I used Helmar's Decoupage glue and paste to apply the paper.
Here's a detail of the embellishments which are all Prima products except the ribbon which is Snug Hug seam binding. That stuff is awesome for any project!
The papers are perfect for any occasion but I love the pinks, reds, greens and teal colors for Christmas too!
Emboss the edges of the metal tin to hide the printed sides and create some texture. I used Helmar's Crackle Step 1 for the adhesive for the embossing powder. WOW embossing powders are awesome with many materials!
Surprise!! Here is the little gift inside the tin. I created a handmade necklace with paper, a clear facet, rub on, bling, and chain. I added embossing powder on the back for a similar look to the outside of the tin.
