A few years ago I attended a weekend of craft workshops, and I received my lunch in this tin. It's been hanging about disguised as a fabric paint container, a scrap paper container, and a general dust-gatherer for quite some time.
My ribbon container has been looking decidedly unattractive so I decided that it was time to move that along and decorate the "TIN"...
I chose some wonderful sheets of DP, and using Modge Podge, adhered the paper to the tin.
I decorated the seams with different ribbons - here the pegs are holding the ribbon in place while the dimensional glaze dries. I tried modging the ribbon but I couldn't get it to stay stuck!
Some beautiful Prima Flowers and a strand of lacey pearls perks up the lid. I added Stickles to the flowers for some extra bling.
I used this wonderful Broderie Anglaise ribbon for the side seam, and embellished it with pearls.
Here's a front view of the completed tin. I think I'll find a nice die cut word for the front of the tin, or perhaps use my grunge board letters to make my own "ribbon" letters.
