Tin swap with Shez….

PicMonkey Collagefdgfr

This is the beautiful tin I received from Shez in our one on one swap this month, Shez spoilt me rotten again!  Look how beautifully Shez made up the inside of the tin to compliment the outside and aren’t those tiny teddies super cute! Then to top it off Shez also filled the tin with lovely goodies like patterns, threads and a beautifully hand made Etui in my all time favourite colour red! Thanks Shez, I hlove our one on one swaps….now to get moving on our Christmas themed one Smile

This is the tin I made up for Shez, I filled it with cottage garden threads, swing tags, fabric and a couple of mini tins I found in various places while out and about shopping ( as you do lol )

With the inside I did a little stitchery, it was supposed to be inside the lid but ooopps I made a boo boo and when I went to close the lid it wouldn’t so I had to rethink what to do as I still wanted to use the stitchery and this is what I came up with SmileI must admit now that I’ve tried making a decorated tin I’ll be on the look out for a few more hinged tins as I’d love to make another one or two of these and put in my gift basket.
