This idea for the Contempo Christmas stamp set (have you seen the sale bundles yet?) uses a tin that once held Christmas chocolates. Now it holds another sweet Christmas greeting!
When you untie the bow and open the tin, the card folds out in a zig-zag. The punched ornament from the Contempo Christmas stamp set serves as a pull tab.
There are a couple things about this particular tin that make it easy to decorate.
Here are my **Tips for Selecting ‘Stamp-able’ Containers:**
- No Embossing: it’s tricky to cover a tin that has a 1/4″ embossed Snoopy on the front
- Solid Edge Colors: unless you like fussy cutting, picking tins with good edge colors means you can leave them uncovered
- Decoration Limited: when the printed design on the tin front doesn’t go to the very edge, your decoration size can be a little more flexible
You could make this project into a mini scrapbook, too. Just add more pages and more photos. If you choose a larger tin, the ‘pages’ can be larger and you won’t have to crease your photo to fit inside. Here’s an example using a little suitcase tin.
Actually, the Small Tin (124239) on the Stampin’ Up! Clearance Rack right now is just about perfect. You can order these online through my store.
