Treasures box

This tin started off it's life containing yummy fudge my parents brought me back from their trip to Lands End!

Sadly as all the contents were eaten quite rapidly, it became 'just a tin' until I decided to decorate it into a little trinket box

I have used papers from Dovecraft, sizzix corner dies, letters from Martha Stewart alphabet punches, and stickles, ribbon and gems from stash.

What a great little gift box & a great way to recycle too. I like doing this with the little tins that hold peppermints. Thanks for playing along with us at Paper Sundaes this week :)
