Card cheer tin

When card tins first became popular I bought a bunch and made a few to give them out as gifts. Of course then I never got around to making one for myself. When I saw this K&Company paper at my local Scrapbooking store I knew it was exactly what I wanted for a tin for me! (I actually wanted the striped paper that matches it also, but the store didn't carry it and I can't find a local store that does) The paper is from the Wild Saffron line.
I used Mod Podge to adhere the paper and I also put a layer on top of the paper. I inked the lid up with Mango Madness VersaMagic Dew Drop . I put two flowers with a brad in the middle on the lid. I love the vibrance and color of these flowers, but they didn't look right on the side. The lid is the perfect place!
This tin is going to be a great place to put all the lovely cards and notes I get and want to cherish. I am one of those people that takes out old notes on a bad day just to cheer me up.
Now if only I could find cloth in the same cool pattern as this paper. I would love throw pillows in that pattern!
