Mommy & Me tins





Waow, my 1st project for March? I can't believe it...
The last 2 weeks are actually a blur of sickness for the whole family, and stress, and heartbreaking loss... :-(
Sometimes bad things just decide to pile on you all at the same time...
As much as stamping therapy was needed, it just wasn't an option at the time...
So I'm back (hopefully on track!) and wanted to share those "Mommy & Me" little tins....
I needed a box to send a glass pendant to my sister-in-law, and I thought it would be fun to decorate a tin a little and make a perfect mini copy for my (3 1/2 years old) niece.
The big tin is from oriental trading and is a little bigger than an Altoids tin. The little one is from PaperTrey Ink, I just adore those, I bought a few to make little teeth boxes, tiny treasures boxes, etc... The papers and ribbon are from Target. You can't see in the pics but I doodled with my gel pens in the middle of the flowers, it's a pretty little shiny effect in real life... The colors are a little off (especially the table under them), but I took the pics at night just before shoving them in a padded envelope, and they're on their way to the post office (if hubby doesn't forget! ;-)) so no re-do! :-)
I think my niece will be really excited when she sees she has the exact same as her mom! ;-)
In hers is a little accordion of paper that my daughter decorated with her drawings.
