Woodware Design Team Challenge - Look what I did with my tin

Apologies as I know some of you might have seen this tin before but I am snowed under with sample and magazine articles to complete. I think... well I know that Christmas day will be a rare day off in the coming weeks!

I have used elements from this set:
FRCL157 Time for a Cuppa
as well as 'Chippies', Nailheads and papers to decorate my tin. The silver Nailheads almost look as if they are part of the original tin. Being silver they are very versatile in that you can alter the colour to suit by using Peel off's pen, Sakura Identi Pens and alcohol inks.

 I have painted the 'Chippies' with acrylic paints. The paint goes on very well - no lifting or buckling!

I also like 'Brilliance' inks on the 'Chippies'. Woodware have two alphabet packs both containing two sheets with two complete aphabets.I have also used the 'Bracket' frame on the tin.
I have filled the tin with some individual special tea bags. So a perfect gift for a tea connoiseur!
Think outside the tin...

Pop along to the Woodware Blog for other ideas all this week using tins.


  1. this is a delightful gift idea for a faraway friend, very special, and love the stamp set, thanks for the inspiration

  2. What a great little gift idea – and so pretty. Change the colours (and perhaps omit the bow) and it would be nice to give to a guy too? I wonder what else will fit in one of those tins?
