Dies R Us A "Tin of Cards"!

I'm up on the Dies R Us Inspiration Blog this beautiful Monday morning.  Today I'm sharing an altered tin containing mini gift cards.  I taught a class a while back using these tins with Christmas tags in them.  I loved the idea and decided to make a few to give as gifts.
 


I started by tracing the tin lid and bottom.  The bottom I traced twice and trimmed one of the papers to fit inside the tin.
 

Next, I inked all of the edges before adhering the papers to achieve a vintage appearance to the tin.  I cut a thin strip from the collection pack cover to use around the outside of the lid.  This worked well and showed the image on all of the patterned papers.


The top of the tin is embellished with fussy cut and die cut papers.
 

Here are a few angle shots that show the dimension on the tin cover.




I made four mini cards that measure 3x3 covered with the same papers.  They are embellished using die cuts and have various greetings on them.
 
 
 
And, here is the finished tin and card collection...
 
 
I really had fun creating all the tin and mini gift cards.  This makes a great gift that keeps on giving
