Decorated Tin Container

Tim Holtz is one of our most favorite paper craft rock stars.  Brandy and I were even were able to meet him in person a little over a year ago.  It is no wonder then that we have used many of his techniques featuring the work here on our tiny little blog.  Specifically to this post, we've both made many of his paper roses.  You can find a good YouTube video demonstration of the technique here.  The technique can be a little tricky at first, but the final result is stunning.  Much like riding a bike, once you've figured it out you'll never forget.  I've used a flower made from double sided patterned paper to accent this small tin gift box.  The tag was cut from Cricut's Accent Essentials cart and stamped with a CTMH stamp set.  This cute little tin was used to gift a small amount of fudge to a friend.  I had premade the flower, so it was a couple minutes to cut out, stamp and ink the tag, find the finished flower and swirl embellishment from previous crafting excursions, a little glue and we've got a quick gift of fudge.

Thanks so much for looking.

Thank you so much for your kind words. Isn't it fun to encourage one another, even from a distance?
