star tin and cards

Ahhh...you gotta love Saturday's don't ya? This is a little gift set that I made about a week ago that I am just now getting a chance to show you. First, please imagine the ribbon on the outside of the tin being straight. I can't believe I didn't notice that before!

So...what did I use to make this tin? Well...lets see...the beautiful Baja Breeze snowflake paper is from the Level 3 Holiday Happenings Bundle, the ribbon is Riding Hood Red Taffeta, the stars from the Holiday Mini's star ornament set, and the tin is from SU! (and they are available in packs of 3 right now) and the silver cording is that elastic silver cord that I told you about earlier in the week. The belly band slides right off and...

When you open up the tin inside you will find two of each of the cards that you see below. The cards are note card sized and are stamped with PTI's Snowflake Serenade set. I added a little bit of bling in the center of the snowflakes and I must say...they are lovely.

Now, I am aware that the outside and the inside of this set doesn't really match that well (the stars are what I'm referring to) but I do love this set. The stars can be removed so they are able to be used within the recipients house or on their tree.

I hope that your gift making is coming along well and that maybe you got an idea or two for something you'd like to make.

Have a super Saturday everyone! Get lots and lots of stamping done!

Ok, if you hadn't mentioned the stars not matching I would have never noticed. This is a great project! If you need someone to send it to, I'm available!

I don't think it's a bad match at all. It all coordinates so well. And I wouldn't have even noticed the crooked ribbon if you hadn't pointed it out. Nice work! It's a beautiful set.
