Whiff of Joy Advent Calendar - Day 4

Good Morning Everyone! I am very excited today as I am today's host for the Whiff of Joy Advent Calendar. Today on my blog we are opening Window 4 and I have a special project to share with you which I planned months ago when I found a little tin on my way to work!

WoJ_AdventCalendar

The tin has been waiting patiently in my car for me to transform it and I have made it into a gift card holder and embellished it with the beautiful Sweet Christmas stamp which one of you will have the chance to win today if you comment on this post.


I started decorating the tin by first giving it a light sand to key the surface and I then gave it two coats of acrylic paint and left it to dry. I covered the top and the bottom of the tin by applying PVA glue and then covering with BoBunny paper and then sanded the edges when dry for a neat finish. I wrapped Whiff of Joy twine around the lid and then gave it a good coat of pva glue to seal and left it to dry.

I inked the edges of the papers and then added a glittered label, a sentiment ticket, some letter stickers and flowers, a wooden snowflake, some die cut holly and some gems before adding the image.
I coloured the image with Promarkers to match my papers and added gems and glitter and then cut the image out and added it to the tin with foam pads. I added glitter to the flowers and around the edges of the lid, smudging it so it looked a bit distressed.

To decorate the inside of the box. I cut papers to fit and added a label to the lid with a snowflake and a strip of paper to secure the gift card.
This is the back of the box, you can see I added more glitter and also see the string around the lid on this photo. I had so much fun decorating this tin and will be keeping my eyes peeled for more discarded treasures on my way to work! Have a great Sunday and remember, you need to leave a comment on this post for the chance to win the stamp I used.
