surgery survival

I had decided some time ago to make a tin for my grandpa for after his surgery. Wasn't sure what I was going to do but I was definitely inspired by Melanie's What's in your tin? sets. I know...this looks like the tooth fairy tin but different paper and stamped sentiment...and it is but isn't it a great guy tin? I love the colors and the fact that I could use a ribbon and different patterns and it still looks good!
Above is what the tin looks like closed. The papers are SU! and DVWV. I love DCWV stack packs as you get just the perfect size. The stripe on the top is DCWV and the rest is SU!.
This is the view inside. If you can't read the list for items for some reason just e-mail me and I'll come back and edit the post for ya. I am still making one more tin for my grandpa's wife and then I think I'll be done with tins for a little while as I need to move onto other things. HERE is where I got the info for the survival kit.

Don't forget to check out my image swap at the top of my posts. Feel free to join us! Have a super Sunday and see you tomorrow!

Oh my! How stinkin' cute...er... handsome is that? Is that an altoid tin or something you bought somewhere? And, forgive me, I'm a little blonde... what is DCWV?

Corbin has 101 and hamburger meat throat. Isn't it great he has a mother that shares with him??? Why can't we all get sick at once and call it a day?

Ok, sorry for the book post. Have a wonderful day!

Oh yea, LOVE the tin, and I know Grandpa will too!
