Decorated Bird tin and Cards

The morning project of my extravaganza was a decorated bird tin and 4 cards.

Everyone received a tin and a lovely decorated spice jar filled with all their ribbon and accessories for the day, a full pack of pearls and glue dots, together with 1/4 of a pack of twitterpated designer paper and 4 notelets and envelopes, and  on their table was either  the wood or clear mount Mixed Bunch Stamp set and the blossoms punch if that had been ordered.

Here is the tin

The top of the tin was covered in riding hood red and baja breeze cardstock and some of the twitterpated dsp.  All the edges were distressed using the cutter kit.  A bolt of baja breeze seam binding ribbon was tied around the middle.

The bird was die cut using the elegant bird die and the big shot and then the body was embossed using the dots folder.

The tin was also decorated inside and a pocket was made inside the lid to hole the envelopes secure.

We then made four cards and envelopes to go inside.

I apologise for the quality of the photo's, these were taken last week when the weather was so dark and I had to have the lights on, but I hope you get the idea.

The tins were purchased from Tinware direct and the notlets and envelopes are from Stampin' UP!

Back soon with some photo's of the afternoons projects.

    I want to thank you for one of the best extravaganza's you have done. I have come to everyone and though they are all fantastic, this one was extra special. Really enjoyed the day with a group of fantastic people. So worth the money also, not only did we get a stamp set, but all the bits and peices, you must have been out of pocket. The raffle prizes were brilliant.
