Crafty storage...





As my collection of stamped images just keeps growing and growing thanks to all the kind people that have sent me images and beautiful wallets, I thought it was high time I got something to store them all in. After searching endlessly on the internet trying to find a Maya Road coffee break tin and getting nowhere I came across this biscuit tin in Morrisons for £2.99. I decided to pick it up as I thought it would be ideal for altering into a little filing tin.

I used Cup cake papers to cover and then added some Ribbon, prima flowers and a stamped image. I used my sizzix Smart Guy Alphabet to do the wording. I am pleased with it but it didn't come out as I expected it to.

Hope you are all ok. Have a good bank holiday weekend whatever you maybe doing.
