How FUN is that!

Now, here’s my project…

Our daughter-in-law’s birthday is also on Christmas day, so I always try to make her “card” a little less “Christmassy”. I found this gift tin in the reduced aisle at Hobby Lobby ($1.49) and decided to alter it for her. (so, Dianna, if you’re reading this…ACT surprised!)

TagGiftTin

I used Mistletoe Tag Set, colored with Copics. I sewed silk ribbon where the ribbon weaves through and silver seed beads are sewn on with silver thread.

TagGiftTin clsup

The sentiment is from Poinsettia Tag Set. I used the Tag Die again to cut the extra piece to extend the tag a little so it fit the tin front a little better.

It’s stamped in Distress Forest Moss and sponged with the same. That’s Basic Grey Green At Heart. I also used the Bow Easy for my bow.

TagGiftTin open

Now on to Connie’s blog… be prepared to be amazed!

Thanks for stopping!

Whoever receives this tin should be a happy camper. This is so cute and I'm not a fan of using pink and green together. You did an amazing job.

Such a fun and not "christmasy" look -how nice for your DIL you have a special gift to make her feel special.

Dawn, love the non-Christmas look of this gift tin. I have the same birthday as your daughter-in-law. The ribbon and silver beads that you sewed on the tag are perfect. Thank you for sharing this amazing artwork. Have a wonderful Thanksgiving season.

Janaria said...

So precious! What a sweet MIL, you are. . .this is just beautiful and I'm sure will be treasured. You've definitely met the challenge for a December birthday. . .that keeps it separate from, yet still identified with, Christmas. I love how you've combined the pink and spring papers with the seasonal features. Jan E.

Becky said...

This is so pretty, I just love how you did this in pink.

jeanne girl said...

She should be very happy to receive something so beautifil!!

klasickewpie said...

Everytime I see this pink and green color combo, it is a fond memory of the colors my grandmother had in her home. Love the stitching of the ribbon with the added pearls, and the tip of extending the size of the tag itself is fantastic!

Love the colors you used on this. Both my daughters have birthdays on Dec. 30. I try to keep everything from looking like Christmas when we celebrate the birthdays, too.
