Gift Tin

Here it is: the middle of December, so here I am with some mid-month inspiration for Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas Challenge Extra.  You still have a few days to get some Christmas crafting done.  The challenge is Anything Christmas Goes and it lasts for the whole month.  I decided to alter a gift card holder tin.  I don't know why I've never thought of this before, but it's perfect!  It's one of those gift card holders that you can buy at Walmart or someplace like that; someone gave it to me a few years ago.  I adhered some ribbon around the top edge of the tin and then decorated the top.  I love how it came out; it really makes the tin extra special.  And it's even perfect for the recipient to regift.
 And here's a shot of the inside with the gift card already in it.

Now it's your turn to get crafty and play along.  We love seeing what you create.
