Ginger Blossom Gift Set

I've had these tins for a while and finally put them to use!

I've really been loving this Ginger Blossom DSP and will be very sad to see it go. It's become a favorite of mine. But, I'm certain that Stampin' UP! will come up with another new favorite for me!!

Anyway, I thought these two pieces would make a great set. The smaller circle tin has a clear top which I put a RubOn that reads "A small thing done in great LOVE is a great thing". Perfect saying for a tiny container! And I lined the bottom with the DP. There are even a couple rhinestones on the lid to add a bit of bling. And the tin is wrapped in double-stitched Groovy Guava ribbon.

The coordinating piece is a CD tin. On the front I used some RainDrops to add a touch to the flowers, one of which is ChipBoard. And it says "You make me smile" which is perfect for what is inside.....


Inside is a mini-album! There is a place on the inside of the lid for a photo and the other side has an accordion style album that pulls out with places for 8 more photos (front and back). I used the new scallop punch on the inside of the lid and even some Prima flowers on the album part.

This DP is perfect for cutting out the larger flowers to use as an accent. I didn't do an ounce of stamping on this set! The CD tin is closed with a tie of the Groovy Guava double-stitched ribbon.
