Sassy Gift Tin

Hiya Peeps,

My Mojo is missing lately so I thought I'd show you something really simple.  We had a tin of travel sweets in our office and when the last one was taken it was time for me to confiscate the tin.  Everyone in my department knows there's a use for boxes, tins, bags etc, lol.

All I've done is covered it with paper.  I did think about painting the tin first but thought it may be difficult to fit the lid on afterwards, plus I liked the metal showing.  So here is my simple gift tin using "Christmas Kisses" available from Funky Kits.

Oh and by the way, I have received the next release, wow weeeeeee, that's all I'm saying.......

Tracy, everyone knows around me that I do the same thing. DO NOT throw away anything that can be redecorated haha! I have my kids jelly bean tins from Easter ready to be fixed up!
Anyhow, this is wwwwaaaaayyyy cute! Your coloring knocks my socks off! She is a super cute image too and can't wait to see the rest!
Hugs, Dena

Very clever use of an empty tin!!!! Beautiful!

I had to laugh at your confiscating the office sweet tins........ Love what you've done with those leaves & the floral embellishments. Sounds like the next release is going to be very interesting too.
Mr Mojo is probably just having a rest as he's been very busy........ by the looks of your posting. I like your Father Christmas paper round the sides & then the spotty design on the top as a backdrop for the image.

It's a really gorgeous tin box now, I bet it was quite ugly before besides the content :-) :-) Simply pretty!
