Covered Tin

I have had this lavosh tin for months, and have been using it to store my scraps of paper and card. Today I finally got around to prettifying it. :-)

I used SEI Paisley and Polka Dot paper, which I absolutely love. I wish I'd bought more of it. I have given it a couple of coats of satin varnish to protect it. The ribbon around the lid I coloured with an ink pad, and the ribbon on the top of the lid was wrapped around some towels we bought ages ago.

I am really pleased with the final result. It's much better than having a lavosh tin on my desk, making me want to snack all the time (not that I need any incentive to snack).

It also matches a little baking powder container I covered in the same paper to put my USB key in.

The best thing about this, I think, is that it is for me, unlike most other things I make.
