Quite a few years ago these tins were popular to decorate and place a Staples note pad inside. They are approx. 5×7 and I still have a stack of them in my basement…anyone else? lol. I recently needed to make a small gift and I couldn’t find what I needed for the project I had planned…so I looked around for another idea and found these tins.
I decided to create it as a Christmas notepad tin and I immediately knew I wanted to use the cute truck die! It’s the Spellbinders October 2018 Large Die of the Month- Truckin’ Through the Seasons die set. And it’s awesome! I also wanted to pair it with the buffalo plaid that is so popular right now. This one is Concord & 9th Plaid Background. The sentiment is from the Sweet ‘n Sassy Home for the Holidays set. I added some Crystal Effects to the window and embossed the trees with a Buffalo Plaid embossing folder!
Inside the tin I added a pocket on the left (which I inserted a little die to add with the gift) and above it I attached the December calendar with removable tape (so it can be switched out).
The little truck is so cute, it will be fun to use in other seasons too!
Have a great day!
