First Card Tin
I made my aunt a card set for Christmas. April 4 was her birthday and my mom told me that she was wanting some more. I decided that as a VERY belated birthday present I would make her a card tin and fill it with cards for her to send out. This was the first time I had tried a card tin and I like all but the lid (which you can't see in the pic). I thought the paint I bought was close to the color of the paper but it turns out that it's quite a bit darker than I expected. I got the ribbon at Hobby Lobby (when I bought the paper) and the lady at H.L. was extremely helpful. I know what I saw but she gave me a new set of eyes and helped me choose the ribbon I did.
