Hello Friends - Annie here with a quick and easy DIY gift tin. This little tin is perfect for all those small treasures - earrings, rings or small photos of friends & family. Whatever, your special treasure is this tin is a great place to store it.
This simple and sweet tin features the Princess Foiled Paper Variety Pack and this month's special collaboration with Joy Clair Stamps. I was given the privilege to work with Joy Clair's Doodle Flowers stamps.
Princess Foiled Paper Variety Pack - Crafter's Pack -6" x 12"
Small 4" x 1-1/4" tin or box
Tsukineko Stazon Ink - Jet Black
Adhesive (I used Tonic Studio Nuvo Deluxe and Aleene Clear Gel Tacky Glue)
Small Embellishments (I used Ranger Liquid Pearls in Gold)
Trimmer & Scissors
Stamp block/ platform
So, let's get started.
1. Trace the lid of the tin onto scratch paper. You just need it as an easy template. If you have a 4" circle die - you can use that instead. Cut the 4" circle from the desired Foil Paper. I used the Starstruck Lavender Light Purple. Next, cut 2 strips from the same Foil Paper - one measuring 1/4" x 12" and the other 3/4" x 12". these will go around the lid and base of the tin. The paper is just shy of the full circumference of the tin - I needed a small filler piece of the Starstruck Lavender Light Purple.
2. Adhere all the cut pieces to the tin. Circle on the top of the lid. The 1/4" x 12" around the lip of the lid. and 3/4" x 12" around the base of the tin. Set aside to dry.
3. Stamp the desired amount of flowers* using the Joy Clair - Doodle Flowers Stamp Set using Tsukineko Stazon Ink - Jet Black. You want a multi-surface ink - because the foil paper is slick. I used from the Starstruck Blush Pink, Starstruck Silver Glossy Blush Pink/Gold, and Glossy Lavender Light Purple/Gold. I also used some Starstruck Jade foiled paper. Next, fussy cut the flowers out. Then arrange the flower as you wish onto the lid of the tin. Adhere in place.
4. Embellish as desired.
Now you have a complete Treasure Tin - Perfect to give to that special someone.
