Altoid Gift Tin and Crafter's Companion

This is a fun and very easy little 
gift to make. It even can hold a Gift Card. 
Here are the supplies I used:

                Altoid Tin                                                Foil Tape
                       18kt Gold Leafing Pen                              
               Silver Leafing Pen                      Marilyn Robertson Kimono 
                                                              Embossing Folder - Oriental Floral

                       SC Floral Fantasy Die Cuts - Motifs and Accessories

                  SC Floral Fantasy Clear Stamps - Blooming Sentiments

I began by cutting two pieces of the foil tape. I put the pieces in an embossing folder to create that amazing design for a POP of elegance. Then I took my silver leafing pen and "colored" the edges of my tin. I applied the foil tape to the tin lid. I used some Luxury Mirror and Sparkle cardstock from Crafter's Companion and die cut out my flowers. I used Gold for the outer part of my flower to add some contrast. I made a little banner and stamped my sentiment to finish.
