Birthday Tin

I decided to try some of those cute lunch tins. The project is a little "trying"! I had a hard time keeping the ribbon on. I looked up and read a lot of different directions for making these, and one person used glue dots to keep the ribbon on. DON'T try that, the ribbon kept popping off. I am still not sure how to attach it. I modge podged the tin after I had the paper on, but wasn't sure if I should modge podge the ribbon. Anyone out there that has tried this, please comment and let me know. For this tin, I just found some primary color pattern paper. I used the Cricut to cut "birthday". After I had everything on, then I brushed on a layer of modge podge. I made some file cards for the inside with each month across the top and lines to list birthdays for that month.

Think Pink!

I found these purse boxes at a scrapbook store and thought I would try to decorate some. You can find these at Eclectic Paperie under "alter this" by Bare Elements. (PS they are on sale right now!) I went with a "girly pink purse" theme with matching cards. The paper I used for these is from Close to my Heart. The stamp set I used is "Fashion First" from Stampin' Up. The sentiment on the purse box "Good friends are the best accessories" is from Stampendous. Well, I'm off to make more boxes, plus my cards for card club tomorrow. So much crafting to do, so little time! Thanks for looking! TTFN!

Again, sorry I haven't been posting lately, but I have been busy creating! I have all kinds of new stuff to show you as I get ready for my next craft show. Here is are a few "Princess" things I have been working on. I found these Princess post it notes at Michaels. I embossed the crown from Oh My Word (Stampin' Up) and the sentiment Make a Wish (Penny Black) in silver. The bag and the iron on crown both came from Hobby Lobby.
