Tin Challenge

 Here is the small tin I picked up at Michaels. Scrap, Laugh, Love challenge for October was to alter/decorate any tin. I have been working on different containers for my desk to hold some of my embellishments in. At the time I thought I would make this into a pen holder
This is the top of the lid. I used cs from DCWV At Home stack that was exclusive to Micheals. The cs is blue with a purple motif, some of the blue has sparkles in the paper. The bling swirl is made up of purple, lavender and clear rhinestones, the flower is sliver. I boarded the top in Purple stickles to help seal the edge of the cs to the silver ribbon I used on the edge of the tin top.
 First I added the cream lace to the top of the tin then covered it in silver ribbon. I next used Purple stickles to seal the ribbon to both the lace boarder and the cs top.
 On the body of the tin I covered it in the same cs as the top and applied a matching bling flourish also added the same flower as well. The lettering is Thickers and reads "lace" on the other side of the word is a butterfly in purple and green.
Once I finished the tin I choose to use it to store my bits and pieces of lace in it. It will match nicely with my "recycle" container and my address/birthday box.
