Card Tins





They're like a 3-D card- and so many possibilities. I finally figured out how I like the lid to be inside and out. On the outside of this tin I used craft ink, and helped the drying process along by using my trusty heat gun. After letting it and me rest a while I decided to mod podge over it. Yeah! Works like a charm. You see, mod podge and I aren't the best of friends. I'd sooner glue my fingers together than get it on the actual intended work surface. How in the world did I make it out of kindergarten??? Ha! None the less, here's one of my finished tins. All supplies are from Stampin' Up! One more piece of 12" x 12" down, 3127 left to use.

Do you notice how low those eyelets are in the tin? That's thanks to my nifty Big Bite Crop-A-Dile II from We R Memory Keepers. I bought it a while ago and have been a bit intimidated by it's size. No worries, though. Once I punched a few holes (and yes, it's like buttah going through these tins!) and set a few eyelets- it's like it's suppose to fit in my hand just so. The weight is no big deal, either. I'm in love and doin' the happy dance!

I'm off to finish dinner and work out my stampin' and crafting schedule for the next couple of months.

Happy day!
