Altered Tins & USB Drive Holder

I have always admired the altered tins with the paper pads inside of them. I always wondered where do you find paper to fit inside the tins? Well, I still dont have that answer, but I can show you how to cut the paper down to size.

Supplies you will need:

I first measured the paper inside the tin to see where I should make my cut. I then lined up my straight edge with the line on the paper and cut through the sheets of paper. I had to go back and forth several times and use a bit of pressure to get through the entire stack of paper. The paper pad is then ready to be decorated and placed in the tin.

I decorated the DVD tin and the paper pad with Daisy D Paper. I inked the edges of the paper before adhering the paper with my taperunner. I put tiny buttons on top of the pink polka dots as accents. I covered the inside of the tins too.
I also created a little holder for a USB drive out of Small Hinged Top Tin. I have seen these done with Altoid style tins, but I made my holder with a smaller version of that style tin. I found the USB drives to fit inside this tin at Costco (which is a price club discount warehouse in NY).
I also customized my USB drive with the same paper.

I hope you enjoyed my little project. This was quite possibly one of the quickest projects that I have ever done. Thank you for stopping by =) Do not forget to enter my blog candy contest. I will select a winner for a $25 gift certificate to my store on July 9, 2008.


Edit: If you are interested in the smaller USB drive, I found it on sale at Staples this week.

Tier of Treats & Ranger Glossy Accents

This birthday card was created for one of my favorite people. I made this delicious card using a Stampendous stamp, Tier of Treats. If you are interested in purchasing this stamp, please email me as I have not had a chance to upload it to the store.

To make the strawberries and cherries look extra yummy, I accented them with Inkssentials Glossy Accents by Ranger.

This stuff is amazing! It makes your colors pop & look like glass. Of course I used my favorite copic markers and stickles on this card too. The paper is Basic Grey. The sentiments are Inkadinkado's Formal Expressions. I inked the edges of the card using Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Broken China.

I hope you enjoyed my card. I appreciate all of your feedback & support.

Thanks for looking,
