ATC Holder

As I posted a couple of days ago, I joined an ATC swap group.  We meet once a month.  Everyone at the swap had these cute little coffee/cafe tins that they had decorated, and they use them to pass their group of cards around the table.  One of the ladies is the source of the tins...whenever she finishes the coffee, she brings them to the meeting in case anyone wants them.  Luckily she had a couple at the meeting I attended and was kind enough to give me one.  I was so excited to decorate it!  I have another one, but I haven't gotten around to decorating it yet.





I used paper from DCWV's Immortal Love stack.  The image is from Tiddly Inks and was colored with Copics.  Flowers were punched out, then outlined with a black sharpie or a silver uniball pen.  Gems in the center of the flowers were originally clear, but I colored them with light blue or black Copics.

I really like this tin.  I like how it's simple, but still pretty.  =D  Thanks for stopping by to take a look!

This is so cool but is this the little instant flavored coffee ones?
You said they pass cards around in them? Are they small cards? It is super cute. I love the paper and image you used. You have some of the cutest stamps. You make me want to get some SImply Betty ones.
