Altered "Tea" Tins

This is actually a Crystal Light container. I really like the shape of their new containers, and we drink a lot of the Ruby Red flavor. I started by covering the container with PTI Tea Leaves paper. I don't have any of their tea sets, but I do have their second anniversary set, Everyday Classics, which has this lovely teacup image in it. I stamped it in Ripe Avocado Hybrid ink on white, followed by the teabag in Palette Noir. I stamped the teabag again on Aqua Mist CS and cut it out, popped up on foam tape. I used Nesties to cut out the AM scalloped circle, the Mat Stack Die # 1 from PTI for the Ripe Avo. layer which I also Cuttlebugged with Swiss Dots. I added silver brads and a tag, also cut with Nesties. The "Just for You" is from the first Christmas tag set PTI did. I used Sticky Strip to attach the retired SU ribbon to the rim of the lid (which is covered on top with more tea leaves paper) and ran some DMC floss through the tag and ribbon. Finally I added the RA scallop border (SU punch) at the bottom because I thought it needed a little something. I hope the people who get my tins enjoy them. Thanks for looking!
