Project for the week (Last Week)

So here is a great gift to make for anyone on any occasion. I bought these tins from my great friend Sue, who bought them form Oriental Trading Co. I used a total of 4 sheets of 12x12 patterned paper and 6 sheets of 8 1/2 x 11 card stock. The large flowers are actually the white silk flowers that fake Hawaiian lays are made of. I got them at the dollar store and took them apart keeping the white flowers. I needed Perfect Plum colored flowers to match this great paper so I took my SU! Perfect Plum marker and colored the white flower. It worked wonderfully!!! Just be careful cause you will get ink all over your fingers! Let it dry a good 15 minutes cause the material really soaks up the ink. I then layered with a green prima and added a new SU! Rhinestone brad.

Paper: K&Co. Pattern paper, SU! old olive card stock

Accessories: SU! ribbon, misc purple ribbon from my stash of scraps, primas, white silk flowers, SU! Rhinestone Brads

Inks: Versamark with Vanilla embossing powder, Chocolate Chip

Here is a look at what is inside this cool tin:
