Winter Themed Lunchbox Tin

At the first of the 2008 year on the cricut message board, I joined a public pal swap group. It was fun getting to know the person that you were swapping gifts with throughout the year. I want to thank LynO from the cricut message board for being a great public pal. This is a tin that I sent in her last package for the year. I had lots of fun making it and tried out a few new things like embossing the cardstock before adhering it to the tin. I painted on the raised surface of the cardstock with white paint to help the snowflakes stand out and I love the results. I also used a little bit of a glitter glaze on the snowflake embossed cardstock to give it a little bit of sparkle. To get the cardstock around the hardware on the lid, I created a template from a piece of scratch paper by marking with a pencil where there needed to be cuts, I cut out the pattern and then I traced the pattern on the back of the embossed cardstock.
