Grandma's Tin

Grandma's don't need a thing at Christmas, especially my husband's grandmother.  She doesn't want more knick-knacks.  She doesn't want candy or a Hickory Farms gift basket.  She doesn't want you to buy her anything.  So I decided to make her something!

I picked up this ProvoCraft tin at Michael's and slapped that fab flower paper on it.  The paper is Bo Bunny and I got it at Craft Warehouse.  I used Mod Podge to adhere the paper to the tin.  (I'll save the story about the template for another time.)  The red strip is just Bazzill cardstock and the black is a ribbon, which is also around the edge of the lid.  A couple of Prima flowers with a rhinestone in the middle finish it off. Voila!  (I don't know how to make accents!  LOL)  The tin is finished.

I filled the tin with assorted all occasion cards.  She seemed to like them.  I guess this is the gift for the stubborn old woman who has everything.  (I love you, grandma!!)
