A gift-y Tin for Mother


This softly hued tin is a recipe made with a delicious blend of crafty ingredients. Start with a tin, and a few buttery papers, mix in a swirl of The Twinerys buttercup twine, layers of flowers cut with the Cricut and a sugary glitter coated SRM sticker on a tag. This week on the SRM blog the entire team has whipped up some of the most amazing creations with twine from the Twinery {yummiest twine in the universe} and SRM stickers! To see it all and to enter to win a great SRM prize package, be sure to visit the SRM blog!


I used a cosmo Cricket gluber to create this swirled twine flower center, and used the old fork method to create a mini pompom for the smaller flower. The flowers were cut using The Teresa Collins Sophisticated Cricut cartridge {swoon} and the sticker is from the Mothers day sheet by SRM. These papers are actually from a few years back and I had been saving them...for what I do not know, but you know how it is when we love a paper or a fabric we just want to have it so we can adore it with our eyes! :D

How long am I going to make you wait before I announce the winner of the Robot party cartridge!??? *grin*

The lucky winner is........
