Top 2 In Sales for May, Tropical Chic

I totally missed these Copper Tea Tins that are on page 15 of the Annual Catalog. They come 4 tins, $15, #147034. They make the perfect little gift. Speaking of gifts……..I knew they would be perfect for my Top 2 in Sales. Congrats to Becky (#1) and Sheila (#2) for their sales in May.


What is inside you ask? Two rolls of ribbon and a package of Glimmer Enamel Dots. I did have to take the Dots out of the package cut off the edges, (put them back in the package) and I could just fit them in.


Lets talk about adding the Tropical Escape dsp to the tins. Its fast and so easy to add the dsp on the outside of the tins. I took 2 pieces (6 x 6) and adhered them together using Tear & Tape. Then I cut the long side to, 3 1/2″. I will say that I didn’t leave room for the lid on my first one. The second one I cut to 3 3/8″. The lid fits a little better.

I used Tombow Multi Liquid Glue to adhere to the tin. Start in the middle of one of the sides add glue, add dsp, smooth down, then add a little more glue and keep doing that all the way around. This way you can keep the dsp straight.

You can see what I was talking about with leaving a little bit showing of the tin so the lid will fit better in the photos below. Make sure you let it dry for a few minutes before you add the lid.

To decorate the tins I used a couple new products. The focal point is the Stitched Labels die, using the Tropical Escape dsp. I stamped the sentiment from the matching stamp set, Stitched All Around. Then I stamped my flowers and leaves with a “twist”. Ink up your stamp in the lightest color, then take a sponge dauber and add the darker color. See how pretty the leaves and flowers are now? Just die cut, add a Dimensional, and add to your tin. Make sure you “wink” your flowers with Wink of Stella.

Then I wanted a card to go along with the tin, so I used the Narrow Note Cards & Envelopes. I had the left over pieces from the tin and they fit perfectly (just had to cut the length). So they are 2″ x 4 1/2″.  I used the Metallic Ribbon Combo Pack, (Petal Pink) to add ribbon all the way around.  Added a Whisper White Stitched Shape stamped with You are the greatest, and another flower and some leaves. To finish the card and tin off I added some of our Glitter Enamel Dots,
