Life is Sweets!

Here is another tin I created using the "What's in Your Tin" sets designed by Melanie Muechinger and available through Gina K Designs. This time round I decided to make a lolly/sweet tin which would be suitable to give to someone.

To decorate my tin I started with the pretty in pink DP in the new Designer Prints Pack ... I stamped one of the labels from the set onto my pink DP and cut it out around the edge of the stamped image. I stamped the sentiment towards the top of the label so I had room to add my prima flowers which I embellished with raindrop accents.

I attached ribbon to the side of the lid and added some of the larger rain drops around the side of the base for something different.

Here is the inside view of my tin with the goodies/sweets! As you can see I stamped "guilt-free goodies" but then crossed out the guilt portion using a black pen .... I figure it I was giving these to someone ... they would classify as free goodies ... right!

Stamps: What's in Your Tin sets 1 & 2 - Gina K Designs
Paper: Pretty in Pink DP - SU
Other: Black Ink; Pomegranate SU Ink; Bella Accents; Prima Flowers; Pink Grosgrain Ribbon; Altoid Tin

You'll need both tins:) Eat all the sweets, then teeth fall out and you leave them in the other tin and get rich!!!! - so you can buy more teeth, lol! Great project - it gave my a good chuckle.
