Flourishes Tin-for-All-Friday




It's Free for All Friday with the Flourishes Sr. Design team, and today we're feeling a little tin-like!  Jan Marie sent us all these great alterable tins awhile back and today our challenge was to see what we could create with them!  I think you'll find some great ideas from all the designers listed at the end of my post, and you'll want to pick up a few of these tins yourself... especially since they're on sale right now for only $0.75! You can find them by clicking HERE.  (The After-Christmas sale ends tonight at midnight, so don't dawdle!)

For my tin, I'm feelin' a little Valentine love!  I used the Tokens of Affection stamp set, stamping the "kiss" token on a piece of paper from the "Love Me" collection from My Mind's Eye.  I have some of these old circle tags from Buttons Galore laying around, so I adhered the Good For One Kiss token to the tag for more stability.  Then I just tied a ribbon in a bow snugly around the tin, and attached the tag with some red and pink baker's twine.  The ribbon can just slide off the tin for opening, and inside....



... are three tubes of Burt's Bees lip balm so that you can give out plenty of Valentine kisses!  The "or 100!" is computer-generated and I added a die-cut heart stamped with a Valentine sentiment from the Tokens of Affection set.  I cut and scored three small scraps of paper from the "Love Me" paper pad to make little "boxes" around the lip balm to keep them from rolling around in the tin, and added another piece of paper from the pad to the inside of the lid.

Be sure to visit the other Flourishes Sr. Designers to see what they've done with their tins today...


My little tin was a lot of fun to make, and I hope I've inspired you today!  :)

Happy stamping!
