Spring Garden Tin

Spring is popping out all over; the dogwoods and azaleas are blooming and it's just gorgeous here now. This weekend, however, we had nothing but rain, so there was no going out to enjoy the weather. In honor of spring, I made this little fairy garden tin with these gorgeous fairies from an Alpha Stamps collage sheet. At least the fairies can enjoy their weather!
Here's a little shot of the side so you can see the pretty green stripes on that G45 paper: 
I have over 50 tins left...

  3. Thanks so much! I love altering those tins, and since everyone I know keeps giving them to me, I have a seemingly never ending supply.

  10. Does this little tin have a soft fabric lining? So the fairies can repose in comfort? Darling. I skimmed your blog, ooohhhing and aaahhhing over the other tins. I especially like circus themes right now. I'm be back for a closer look.

  11. No soft lining here; the interior is done with G45 paper. The fairies could probably take a little break on the bed of roses, though. :D
