- The paper I used is from a 6x6 pad and the spice tin was a little over 3" high. To make sure I had enough paper to go all the way around and have nice, neat edges, I used tissue tape on the top and bottom edges.
- More My Mind's Eye paper transforms the functional into the decorative. I liked the "dry goods" text...thought it was very appropriate for an altered spice tin! Some lace and buttons soften things up.
- This beautiful clover bouquet is from The Graphics Fairy. I printed it on white paper, layered in onto cardboard and moss cardstock, colored it, then fussy cut.
- I cut a piece of floral foam to fit the tin, adding a few pebbles to the bottom of the tin for weight balance before adding the floral foam. The clover bouquet is glued to a craft stick and stuck into the floral foam. For extra security, I added some glue to the craft stick before I shoved it into the foam. Reindeer moss covers the floral foam and a few springs of silk greenery help fill out the "floral" arrangement and camouflage the back of the clover bouquet.
This will be pretty decor from St. Patrick's Day through Easter.
