This is a gift tin that holds a gift card inside. You could also put candy or a set of gift cards inside. It's fun and easy to make.

To create the cover of the tin I made a Rose Red panel, rounded the corners and adhered it to the front. To make the background, I created a slightly smaller panel and stamped the Medallion stamp from the Fancy Doily stamp set multiple times using the distress inks Victorian Velvet, Broken China and Bundled Sage, then I adhered it to the Rose Red panel. Next, I made a scalloped circle from blue decorative paper using a Nestabilties Die and adhered it to the panel. Finally, I created an oval with a Nestabilties Die and stamped Congratulations on it using Victorian Velvet distress ink and sponged around the edges using Bundled Sage distress ink and adhered it to the scalloped oval.

To create the inside of the tin, I created a Rose Red panel and rounded the corners. Then I stamped the Medallion on white paper using the distress inks and cut out another scalloped oval and a rectangle. I adhered the scalloped oval to the Rose Red panel and then attached the rectangle using Tim Holtz Tiny Attacher.
