Altered Coffee Tin…

Sep 12, 2008

During the holiday season I love to give Ansley’s friends and guests a little something to take home before they leave. It is never anything big just a little holiday candy or homemade treat. Since I have a serious addiction to this coffee… I have LOADS of tins on hand. So I decided to start altering them for the holiday season in hopes of getting a jump start on the holidays. We will see if it happens. At least I do have good intentions. This counts for something… right? You can use rubons to place their names on the tin or leave them blank and hand write their name as shown.

Products Used: Cuttlebug Embossing Folder – Script, My Little Yellow Bicycle Christmas Magic Collection - Ribbon Stripe, Making Memories Ledger Paper, Maya Road Sheer Blossom, Velvet Pleat Blossoms, Velvet Pleat Blossoms – Red & Orange, Felt Beaded Blossoms – Brown & Cream, Green Pom Pom Trim, Jonathan Rubons, ColorBox Fluid Chalk Ink – Creamy Brown, Ranger Alcohol Inks – Ginger & Latte, Melissa Frances Vintage Transfers – Holidays, Heidi Swapp Bling Borders, Red & White Bakers Twine, Buttons and Green Tulle

Measurements: Ribbon Stripe is 2 3/8″ x 12″, MM Ledger 1 1/4″ x 12″ the paper is just a tad bit short so you will need to cover this with either a strip of paper, ribbon or buttons in order to hide the section where the papers don’t meet up all the way. For this reason start attaching your papers from the middle back section.

    Gorgeous of course. I just recently threw about 5 tins away because my brain totally shut down when I tried to figure out what to do with them.
    Luckily, I’ll go through a lot more between now and the holidays.
