gift tin | materials patterned paper, stamps, ink, punches, felt snowflake (Stampin' Up!) + twine + bells + ric rac
A friend of mine ordered these metal tins for me (you get a great discount if you order in bulk; find similar www.papermart.com ). They measure about 5 1/2 inches by 3 1/4 inches, and are just the perfect size for mini cards or gift tags. I decided to use stamps and make a gift tag kit to give as neighbor gifts.
I added a divider to the bottom of the tin to make it a bit easier to separate big tags from smaller ones. The divider measures 6 3/4 inches by 3 3/8 inches, with a "mountain fold" (an origami term: score three lines about1/2 inch apart and fold the center one up to make a mountain) just off center to make two
compartments in the tin.
Who needs to buy tags at the store?
A Note from Katrina
I had the privilege of meeting Katrina Kenison this summer, and absolutely ADORE her book—The Gift of an Ordinary Day. I decided that it would be the perfect gift for a few moms in my life. I dressed up the books with these simple book cards—no wrapping needed!
