Altered Cadburys tin

We had this tin for christmas filled with yummy cadburys biscuits, then after it was empty I was thinking it was about the same size as the largest card I make.

So I altered it to become a tin to put my cards in whenever I need to take them out and about. Its small enough not to be cumbersome but large enough to hold quite a few.

I'm pretty pleased with how it turned out, I used DCWV Latte cardstock, Basic Grey Euphoria paper, vellum embossed with divine swirls, some chipboard letters and quite a few flowers to give it a nice look. I'm just hoping they dont fall off when I'm shoving it in and out of my handbag!!

Oooh, that's so pretty, my fave colours, and I love those flowers. Why do I never have such good ideas? Two tins went in the bin after Christmas........... (but they weren't purple!)
