Flourishes Focus On Tins - Celebrate!

Hi, all, welcome to Flourishes Friday Free For All. this week, The Design Team was challenged to design a project using these little tins. You know what a thing I have for banners, and since it looks like I won't have time to do one of my larger, more elaborate banners for the New Year I think this sweet little number will fill in just fine.

First of all I covered the top of the tin with black card stock, then with a layer of Classic White that I embossed with stars. Then I cut white and black card stock with my Nested Pennant and Lacey Nested Pennant dies--five of each. I stamped the image from Birthday Pennants on all the white ones, adhered them to the black layer, and punched holes in each upper corner. I tied that cute little gingham ribbon knots on one and popped it up on the top of the tin. Then I adhered some Dew Drops in colors to match my banner and added the sentiment.

For the banner, I strung the remaining four pennants together and tied bows on each end, then glittered up some chipboard numbers and attached them to the pennants. Fan-folded, they fit in the tin with room to spare for some tissue paper. That is, IF I could bring myself to give it away ;-)
