Birthday Tin and Card

My DD had a birthday party to go to today so an hour before hand i decided to make the present, nothing like leaving it until the last minute!

So here is the tin and card i made for her friend.

For the tin i used up some old pp and as you can see i cut it a tad short , but this is what happens when you rush and i didn't have anymore of that pp to redo, so it had to do.(excuse the mess on the table) I then added paper flowers held together with a big flower brad, painted the chipboard B and added some glitter to both. I then tied ribbons to the handle.

Fir the card i used my new Kaiser cup cake stamp coloured it with water colour pencils added some glitter and then using my nestabilities cut the cup cake out and the the scalloped background. ran a bit of white cs through the cuttlebug out it all together with a bit of organza ribbon to finish off the card. (sorry not the best photo of the card but we were running late)

enjoy what's left of your sunday

I have been going to chipboard school at Scrapping Outback, it is a 7 week class with a different tutor each week teaching a different technique to use on our chipboard. I am so loving this class it has given me so much inspiration not only from the very talented teachers but also the very talented group of ladies who have joined me in taking this class. I would love to thank Alana at Scrapping Outback for holding this class it have been fantastic. This week is our last week and i shall miss the challenge of completing a layout for each weeks class.
Here are some of the layouts i have done, i will post the others when i have finished this weeks layout. You can see all the layouts created by all of the class participants here
