The Essentials!

Happy Easter everyone! Today I have been playing around with Melanie Muenchinger's " What's in your tin 2" set which is available through Gina K Designs. There are 2 sets in this series which allows you to decorate altoid tins for all sorts of things. Melanie has some wonderful examples of using these sets on her blog if you like to check it out.

I decided to have my tin hold some essentials that a girl may need on some occasions .... a small sewing kit; bandaids; pills for a headache; nail cutters & a file.

The DP I used here was one my friend Tosh sent me for my birthday .... it is called Inspire by Memory Box .... I used two different pieces for this pack to get the layers I needed.

I also punched a hole in the side of the tin to thread through the ribbon ... so that it is easy to carry or pick up when needed. The sewing related items on the top of the tin are actually buttons I have had for some time which I thought went well with this particular theme
