Notecard Tin

So I ordered these little metal tins from Stampin Up's Clearance Rack awhile ago.  I didn't have any plans for them at the time and they've just been sitting in my craft room.  So, I decided to make a little set of notecards to put in the tins for a nice hostess gift.  I had to make the cards 4x4 in order to fit them in the tin.  I kept them pretty simple.  I only have 2 in the photo but I actually made 4.  There's also a blue and a green version.  I used various patterns of DSP in Daffodil Delight, Pretty in Pink, Wild Wasabi and Bashful Blue.  The sentiment is from the Level 3 hostess set Occasional Quotes.  The little leaf is from the Baby Blossoms set.  I added a strip punched with the Scallop Ribbon punch.  I finished the notecards off with a little Paper Daisy and a brad.  I decorated the tin using the same basic layout.  I used a bigger Paper Daisy and a large designer brad from the Sweet Stitches collection.  The sentiment for the tin is from the set A Word for You.  I think I might make a few more of these.  They will make nice little gifts to have on hand.  Thanks for stoppping by!

This is so pretty.
Your design is crisp and clean I purchased a boatload of these tins.

Could you tell what size you cut your papers for the front of the tin?


Thanks much
