Bath Set Tin and Card

Yet another class I created for the Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Class Ideas Challenge in 2009. The stipulations for this months contest, use items from the new Occasions Mini Catalog. I chose the A Great Friend stamp set.

It was not a winner, but was published on the Demonstrator only web site with several others. I kept on trying - and having fun coming up with ideas to share !

This class idea was to show how easy it is to decorate items found at dollar stores then create a matching card for a quick, inexpensive gift.

The first project I submitted to these challenges was the candy bar wrap/gift card holder I posted here; the second project was the A Happy Heart card and treat bag posted here; the third project was the Dream A Little Shadowbox posted here; the fourth project was two cards posted here; todays posting is the fifth project I submitted; the sixth and final project I submitted was the Bella Pets Scrapbook Wall Art project that I posted here.

Two (of the many I've made over the years) other gift sets I made. I loved these little $1 tins and have used them for so many things, each one decorated differently. I made several Christmas themed tins and cards one year to give cookies out in.
