This is what I made for my sister for Christmas.
She had seen my tin that i kept my cards in when I was visiting her in October and asked for one for Christmas.
I covered with the papers from Enchante Designer Series Paper pack from the Summer Mini Catalogue and i just love the perfect plum, mellow moss, pale plum and chocolate chip all together. I also used the wide chocolate chip grosgrain also from the Summer Mini and the standard brown grosgrain.
I used the Simon Lower chipboard letters to do the ‘Jo’ which i covered in the green leafy paper and then covered that in Crystal Effects and sprinkled Dazzling Diamonds all over … makes a very feminine tin with a bit of Bling added. I also made 6 dividers for inside her tin for her different types of cards.
I find it is so much nicer to make gifts for people rather than going out and buying one – they know that you have put more effort into their gift than just buying something from a shop to wrap – it also means their gift is unique and no one else will have one like it!
If you would like to make one of these tins I am more than happy to come and do a class with you and some of your friends – email me for more details.
