Tiny Treasures

Here is a keepsake tin I made with Melanie's new set that she sent me, What's In Your Tin 1, available through GinaK Designs. I decided to make a little keepsake box for Savannah. Inside, I put her hospital bracelet and a lock of hair from her first haircut. The paper is from the Baby Girl Nana's Nursery Stack. I just LOVED the little girl outfits on the paper. The scallop that goes around the side of the tin was simply cut from the paper. . .how easy is that? Now I have to get busy making keepsake tins for my other two children! :) For more ideas on using these sets, visit Melanie's blog! She has new ideas every day! Thanks for stopping by! SUPPLIES USED: Stamps- What's In Your Tin 1 (GinaK Designs), Simple Serif Alphabet, Classic Alphabet (SU); Ink- Groovy Guava (SU); Paper- Baby Girl Nana's Nursery Stack (DCWV), Wild Wasabi (SU); Accessories- hemp twine, clear button, Word Window punch, grosgrain ribbon.

EDITED TO ADD: For cd who posted the following:
