This little tin contains a mini album! I bought a bunch of these small, round tins at Michael's for a dollar each with the intent of putting some kind of goody in them and decorating the outside, then giving them as gifts. But they've been sitting on my shelf for a while and so I decided to come up with something else to do with them. And this is what I came up with!
I decorated the outside with a strip of patterned paper (CTMH Sweet Home) and then put a border sticker around the rim of the lid. I attached layers of silk and paper flowers (paper flower cut with Cricut WIMG) and an adhesive pearl. I cut a tag (Cricut George) and printed "Family" on it.
To attach the album string into the tin, I put the end of the ribbon through a hole in the center of a 1 3/4" circle (Cricut George) and used glue dots to stick it down. Then I added circles on top and bottom of the ribbon for the "pages", leaving a loop of ribbon on the opposite end.
The white cardstock circles are cut at 2" and the patterned paper circles layered on top are cut at 1 3/4" (Cricut-George). I embellished each page with a variety of elements: 1x1 mini photos of my family, scallop frame (Cricut-Accent Essentials), stamped hearts and sentiments (CTMH), silk flowers, paper flower (Cricut-George), half circles with Martha Stewart's Lace Border punch, brads, adhesive pearls and fibers tied to the ribbon between each page:
Here's a view with the pages all spread out:
This little cutie is going to sit on my living room table and hopefully resist being grabbed by little curious hands!!! :) Thanks for looking and have a creative day!
