Card Tin

Howdy blog land! Now that the Christmas festivities are over, I'm back to blogging (hopefully regularly). I taught this as a class at Scrapnesia during December and had lots of fun!! Inside this little tin are 6 basic dividers that are used to separate my cards. One tip on the dividers - make sure they are not bulky at all so that they take up as little space as possible!! This was so super simple to make and is an excellent gift idea!!

So, the details are pretty simple. Paper is from Core'dination (red solid paper) and My Mind's Eye Bloom and Grow Collection (flowered and striped paper). The CARDS word was cut using the Cricut and Ashyln's Alphabet font. This has become one of my favorite fonts!! Then, I also used some bling to accent the word. For the top (which I failed to take a picture of! LOL), I used the reverse side of the flowered paper which was striped (the same paper matting the word). I then added some ribbon around the handle. To hide all my white spaces around the hinge and handle, I added a little bit of Distressed Stickles just to give it some pizazz. I did not finish this off with Modge Podge as I'm not really a fan of what it does to the overall look of my projects.

That's it! It was quite easy and I'm sure I will be doing this again. Happy crafting!!
