A Wedding Favor Tin


Hello! I thought I would share this tin I've altered into a wedding or party favor using Melanie M.'s "What's In Your Tin" stamp set--genius, that girl is! The tins and her stamp sets are available at Gina K. Designs. Those little rings and the tulle are leftovers from my wedding favors, so I could make a ton of these things if there were a need. My cousin is getting married in Napa this July, but she is certain to have much more elaborate favors than this--she's not so much the diy kinda girl that I am, hehe! Speaking of altered tins, have you seen all the FABulous tin projects that were created for Melanie's Tin contest?! They are all so awesome and I plan on casing all of 'em! Check them out here, but don't vote because the contest is over, just some great inspiration, though!
I also played SplitCoast's "Try A New Technique" challenge which shows you how to make this fun and super easy gift card holder. That cake and sentiment are from Gina K.'s "How Sweet It Is" Stamp For A Cause set--$7 of this set goes to Diabetes research of all kinds, which is very important to me and my family personally. My brother lives with Juvenile Diabetes and we all live with the belief that a cure will be discovered. Generosity and support thru projects such as Stamps For A Cause are what will make it happen. Thanks for visiting today, friends! ~hugs and happy stamping~

I love this tin. What a great idea..... I like the bling on there...... Thanks for sharing the link for stamps for a cause. I checked it out.... I didn't know they made stamps to support Autism. I will definately be purchasing that one. I have a son with High functioning Autism... Thanks again Linsey.
