Guest Blogger - Shannon's Gift Card Tin

We're glad to have our Office Manager, Shannon, as our first guest blogger! We loved this fabulous tin that she made so we invited her to show it off!

Shannon was giving a gift card for a wedding she was attending this past summer and really wanted something special for the presentation.

She started off with a blank metal tin (the square CD size) that already has the gift card insert, with slits, inside.

For the front of the tin, she used three layers of pearl finish paper (all from our Envelopments paper collection). She even rounded the corners of the paper, with a corner punch, to fit with the rounded corners of the tin. She embossed the top two layers of paper with a beautiful flower design and accented it with some stick on bling.

A length of co-ordinating burgandy satin ribbon was tied around the whole tin, in a double knot, to accent the front.

Viola! The finished tin looked amazing! What a beautiful, and more interesting, way of presenting a gift card - much nicer that just a plain envelope! I hope this sample has inspired some of you to try something a little different for your next gift card present.

Thanks to Shannon for this fab sample!!
If you have something you'd like to share, please send us a photo and maybe you'll be our next guest blogger!
