And, now, little Paris is 4 years old -- hard to believe!!! Her birthday was today, and this is what I gave her to show her how special she is...
This tin is one of the mini-CD tins I got from eclectic Paperie (http://www.eclecticpaperie.com/) a while back. It was the PERFECT size for what I was planning to put into it! All I had to do was remove the innards, add a pretty designer paper to the top & Bottom, and embellish!
The background designer paper is by Fancy Pants. The flowers are Prima. Everything else is by Stampin' Up!
I clear-embossed the bird image twice, using Old Olive Craft Ink and Glassy Glaze embossing powder. This gave it a great dimensional look that I couldn't help but touch all the time! LOL!!!
This next picture is the tin opened. I cut some quilt batting to fit the top and bottom of the tin, and used Monoadhesive to stick it down.
I also made a little insert, to be used as the birthday greeting "card." It sits on top of the gift.
Underneath, is a bracelet and earring set I made for her. They fit so nicely -- like they were intended to be there all along!
Since garnet is the birthstone for January, I HAD to use it for this set. The other beads are gold-plate. Kind of a "regal" combination, don't you think?
And, here is the complete set. Hope you like it -- I was was very happy with how it came out!
Thanks for looking!
