30 Days of Handmade Gift Giving Blog Hop ~ Day 19

Today you will be visiting ME!

Today, I made a cute altered tin. The one shown is for a Girl, but you can make yours for a boy, or a holiday themed. Its all about the choice of papers and coordinating embellishments you choose.  You want to find your tin, there are so many different styles and sizes of tins to choose from.  Then choose your papers and measure your papers to fit the tin around the body and top of the tin. Adhere the papers using a good solid adhesive like zip glue, Scrap fusion, etc. Then you choose your ribbon to wrap around (if you choose) then trim, then again using a solid glue adhere it to the papers around the tin. Add any embellishments to decorate the tin. If you choose you can use ribbons or strips of fabric and tulle to tie around the handle to add some extra flare. Then depending on what style and size tin you bought to alter, you can add Card Set, Gift Card, small gifts, candy, etc.  Since mine is a tall tin I made a simple set of note cards to put inside.

Note Cards that I've made to go inside. I made a set of 12 with envelopes
