Recollections Tin

Remember the plain white tin I bought at the expo ages ago? Well here it is, finally decorated!

I used paper from the Recollections Designer Paper to cover the tin. I then used Chocolate Grosgrain Ribbon to hide the edges that couldn't be covered with paper neatly. The papers and ribbons where adhered to the tin with SNAIL adhesive, Sticky Strip and Mini Glue Dots.

The word CARDS was stamped in Bravo Burgundy ink with the Pure and Simple Alphabet stamps onto Very Vanilla cardstock, then layered on Bravo Burgundy cardstock. The corner rounder was used on each corner.

The roses were created by stamping the medium sized rose from the Wild Rose stamp set in Bravo Burgundy and Mellow Moss inks. They were then cut out and adhered with Stampin' Dimensionals to raise them up.

The For You sentiment comes from the All Year Cheer stamp set and was stamped with Bravo Burgundy ink onto Very Vanilla cardstock. The ribbon is from the Prep School Ribbon Originals and the frame from the Antique Brass Hodge Podge Hardware.

The ribbons used to decorate the handle are: Chocolate Grosgrain, Celery Grosgrain, Cranberry Stitched Grosgrain, Olive Organdy and assorted ribbons from Prep School Ribbon Originals.
