Upcyled Treasure Tin by Lesa Bird


Hello everyone
Welcome to February and my first post, using Ultimate Crafts NEW
Magnolia Lane Collection by our very own Sue Smyth.
I know Mothers Day is a while away, but it never to soon to start thing of it, so today I've created a "treasure tin" just for mum, using a old coffee tin.
First I chose a page from the 12x12 paper pad "Elegant Lady", cutting it in half, and attached it to the tin using 18mm double sided tape

As there is a small gap, at the top and bottom of the tin which I've covered it with pink cardstock. Next take a piece of Pink Decorative Lace, run 3mm double side tape along the center of the lace, fold it in half, run more tape along the folded edge and attach to tin

From the 6x6 paper pad, fussy cut the lady corner from the Elegant Lady paper adhere to tin using  foam and double sided tape, placing it over the larger Elegant Lady,
 layer flowers and butterflies from the Ephemera set using foam tape to add dimension.

to the large Lady image, add Couture Creations Adhesive Pearls - Pretty Pink, to her string of pearls, and head band, adding a small Cottage rose to complete her head band

diecut 5 Drifting Feathers from pink cardstock, ink the edges and place them behind the flower cluster 3 at one end and 2 at the other end

Place a couple of tassels for the Ephemera pack, along side the tassel in the pattern paper,
use foam tape for a little depth

Cut several flowers layers from the Floral Layers collection using Blue Eyed Daisy, ink the tip of each petal. Layer your flowers adding a dot of glue to create your flowers. Spray with a little water, bend petals into the center and when they dry reopen the flowers. 
Diecut some leaves from green cardstock and adhere the leaves and flowers to the lid of tin.

 I have added Couture Creation Gems, and Pearls to the flower centers. I glued onto wire some butterflies from the Ephemera pack, this creates a look of the butterflies hovering above the flowers

have fun with this beautiful collection
