Celebrate Christmas???

I know that Christmas is FAR off and I am sure you probably think I am crazy to even mention it let alone post something "Christmasy" but the truth is the publication calls are Fall/Winter already and well--when you start creating you have things to share *lol* Although this is more for the tree I just love the idea of decorating tins and putting something special in it. Can you imagine this tin all decked out for Easter too? You could hang it on a bedroom door handle or a special place in the house for the kiddos!



You'll note I added a rub-on sentiment on the top of the tin too.



Supplies
Patterned Paper: Good Cheer--Gingerbread by October Afternoon
Accents: Merry Christmas and Celebrate sentiments from Vintage Transfers by Melissa Frances, Vintage Trim by Melissa Frances, Red and White trim by Bazzill
Other: Tin from PTI

Have a wonderful Sunday. Hope to bring you some stampy things this week :) The kids are enjoying spring break which means I have to convince them to enjoy stamping with me (not too difficult with my daughter but my son is a different story) if I want to show you some new things *lol*

I can see all kind of things in it and i think that easter-eggs will look great in a green/yellowtin.

Thanks for sharing.

This is such a cute idea. I wanted to do something similar to this last Christmas and kept trying to stamp on the lid. I didn't think to try rub ons. Thanks so much for sharing.
