Apologies lots of photos coming up.
Well I've had lots of inspiration this week so made the most of it...Next week I may not have any lol. Thought I would share this little gift set with you. The tin started out life as a tin of nuts we got at Christmas, believe it or not lol.
My very first attempt at masking, found it easier than it actually sounds just need to practice. Used these two adorable "Tilda's" and coloured them with my promarkers: Tan, Caramel, Cinnamon, Cool grey 1,2,3, Satin, Blush and Dusky Pink. The design papers are a mixture of "Craft Creations" and "Dove Craft Piece Of Cake" sets.
The roses are from "Wild Orchid Crafts", the edges of all the papers and card has been distressed.
The adorable sentiment stamp is by "Lili Of The Valley" I love it, perfect for my "Tilda's" lol.
Well it was once full of delicious nuts, but a Racoon stopped by over Christmas and ate them all, so I decided a spot of recycling was in order. I covered the tin with brown card.
Then I added the gingham paper and another strip of brown card. I added some black gingham ribbon around the top of the tin. I also punched two holes in the side of the tin and threaded some more gingham ribbon through to use as a handle.
The tin has been decorated with the same "Tilda's" and sentiment stamp. I have also tied some "Bakers Divine Twine" from "The Ribbon Girl" around the tin.
Not turned out to bad!
Thanks for sticking with me :).
