Here it is Saturday night, and I’m finally in the studio.  I had an idea for a gift tin, and wanted to see if I could make it work.  Some time ago I picked up a couple of the metal (altoid) tins at Archivers when they were on sale.  I thought I would use them business cards, but they are just the teeniest bit smaller than a business card.  However, they would be perfect for a gift card or money (everyone’s favorite gift)!

I was playing with snowflakes earlier in the week, and had an extra that I wanted to use an embellishment on the tin.  I found some Graphic 45 paper I thought matched and decided to cover one of the tins. 

Snowflake Gift Tin

I found an image that looked snowy and covered it with Ranger Cracked Accents.  The flip side of the paper used to cover the tin was die cut/embossed with Spellbinders™ Curved Rectangles Mega Nesties.  For the fun of it and for some added dimension, I die cut/embossed a portion of a frame using the same Nesties™.

Here’s a close-up of the snowflakes and the image.  I love the effect of the Crackle Accent and of course you know I can never find enough uses for the Vintage Glass Glitter.
