i started with an old cd tin [remember in the early 2000's when aol would send 100 to your house filled with their 'demo' cd or whatever?, well i still have some (*whistle*)]. anyway, i covered the tin in some christmas-like paper - it's actually not christmas paper, but i thought if fit and was fun, so i used it! then i used some vellum and white ribbon on the top of the tin. over that i layed down a white tree vinyl rub-on (from ead designs) and then topped that tree off with a red bow and red heart-shaped button. the stamp 'very merry' is simple and sweet! which is why i chose it!
the back of the tin is just covered in paper - no embellishments here, it has to lay flat somehow! :)
inside is cardboard cut to fit into the case and then covered with paper. there is a double sided ribbon tab under the gift card for easy access to the gift card! and i used some fun scrap tape with red and light teal birds for an accent below (along with a few more red heart buttons up top).
i LOVE the color combination for this, these are the colors i decorate in when it's christmas time. love love love!
