vintage tin...

I bought this little tin at Michael's for $2.99 knowing that I wanted to embellish a container to package a Christmas gift in.  My original intention was to spray paint it white and go from there but as usual, my lack of patience got the better of me and I went straight to the embellishing.  Even with the metal tin, I think it has a decidedly vintage look to it.


It really was a simple project with a big pay off...


All I did was cut a piece of designer scrap paper (6 x 6 sheet from Pixie Glen by Prima), distress the edges a bit with Chestnut Roan chalk ink and add a hand made flower.


The twisted rose was made from a strip of white muslin that I soaked in good old Lipton tea bags.  I found a matching bead in my stash and layered it on a squished and turned piece of vintage seam binding. 

I have a couple more of these in the works plus some fun stuff to tuck inside that I hope to share soon.

Oh, the fun of it all...
