Mothers day Gift Tin

These tins were decorated during our class on the 11th of May.
Most of the girls said that they were going to keep their tins.
We used Alcohol inks to colour the lids and each one chose their own colours.

Then we decorated the lids with stickers and flowers.
With alcohol ink you never really know how the result will look like,
but that is exciting. If you want to experiment first, do it on a piece of acetate.
The sides of the tin were covered with paper and decorated with stickers.
And as always, you need to bling it up. Either with some
rine stones or flat back pearls.
Inside the tin are 18 small cards, some completed with
stamped words and small embellishments, The others more plain
and dry embossed.
The small Afrikaans stamps work wonderfully
with this size cards.
Also inside are decorative pins, ribbon, paper ribbon and
flowers. You can really fill it with anything you want.
Earlier this year we decorated the same tin for the
Creative Hobbies magazine but gave it a vintage feel.
Inside are memories of my Grand mother.
The next post I have lined up is all about the
polymer clay class we had with Leisure Books
at Diep in die Berg.
