A biscuit tin to PM Holder!!!

Over at Stampin' for the Weekend the challenge is 'alterations' and as I have purchased my first PMs and had to find a storage solution I thought I'd have a go.

The old biscuit tin in need of a wash and altering!!!
The finished PM holder.

The papers are 'Blueberry Hill'.
The images are GG 'Flower Girl' by S. Woolcote and a Tilda (stamped and donated kindly by Susie Sugar (thanks), Lettering 'Flower Power' embossed and PM Umberella, coloured using new PMs.
The stickers are Anita's.
Magic motif and magic dust used to add sparkle.
Flowers stamped with an XCut punch and others donated by Shirley (thanks).
Ribbon by PM.

Really enjoyed making this and I have a lovely storage tin. Thanks for looking. XXX
