Wrapped Wishes Altered Tin

Here is a little project I just finished for our local Festival of Trees annual charity event. The "tree" that this present will be going inside of is just adorable! Keep watching for more pictures of that from Cassandra! For my contribution, I altered a couple of tin boxes and placed some yummy French soaps inside.
To make the tins:

1. Cut paper to size to fit around the side and on top.
2. Paint all areas which will not be covered by the paper.
3. Sand the painted areas to distress.
4. Adhere paper to tin.
5. Place gift inside.
6. Paint and add glitter to chipboard snowflake (Cosmo Cricket) and stamp sentiment on to tag.
7. Tie it all up!

a little bit of parchment paper and twine secure the soaps inside of their boxes.

That's it! So fun and easy to make :)

Awesome, Katie!

Can't wait to see the completed "tree" I saw the beginnings of it at the crop the other day and it's going to be a hit at the Festival FOR SURE!
