Always Tin

I entered a contest through Stampin' Up! Unfortunately for me I didn't win. Fortunately for you, I can share my projects with you! This is the first of the 3 projects I'm going to show you, an altered tin. The tin once held Breathsavers and once I was done munching on my mints I thought it would be the perfect tin to decorate! Luckily the sides didn't have any writing or graphics on them and the sticker on the top peeled right off!

I used my Coluzzle (before it had been discontinued) to cut out a circle of So Saffron Prints DSP and adhered it to my tin. I then inked up the heart from Always in So Saffron and then colored a few spots on it with my Rose Red and Old Olive markers and stamped in on Whisper White. I then used my paper snips to cut it out and added a silver brad. I adhered it to the tin. I then stamped my sentiment in Rose Red on Whisper White and matted it on a piece of Old Olive cardstock before adhering it to my tin. I stamped the circle flower image in Rose Red and punched it out with my 1/2" Circle punch and adhered it with Stampin' Dimensionals. Lastly I tied a piece of Old Olive 1/4" Grosgrain ribbon around the tin and secured it with a glue dot.
