Tin Tin Tin












**Scroll down a wee bit if you'd like to see Barbara's Retirement celebration card :) **

Welcome to another Flourishes Free for All Friday.  Today the Design Team is going to focus on how to use some really great tins we have in the store.  If you stopped by yesterday you saw the pretty barrettes I created for my nieces for Christmas, and today I'll show you how I packaged them all up to be special for each niece.



Each of the little nieces received two barrettes and two little tins, especially made for each of them;  the tin matching the barrette that was inside.  I have two nieces with "A" names that that's why they're are four A's.  To customize each tin I pulled out some new and fun Basic Grey paper called Indie Bloom  .  It has great vibrant colors in it with fun patterns.  I traced each tin and trimmed out the paper, covering the inside and outside to match, using ScorTape so it would stay secure.


I labelled each tin with Flourishes Country Charm Labels sets, and the Spellbinders Grommet Tags.  Finishing the tins off with some fuzzy chenille ribbon attached with Scor Tape along the bottom, and some pretty gem embellishments.  


Now check out the inside with the barrettes!  See how each barrette fits perfectly inside the tin?    






Join the rest of the DT today for some creative ideas with tins!  Best news?  They're only 75 cents in the store!

Oh my goodness.. I am loving this idea. I miss the girl's barette days. I did their hair everyday before school. This is so neat.
