Snow Family Scrapbook Ornament in a Tin!

Today is my scrapbook ornament in a tin class -- I started doing these a couple years ago, and always have so much fun with them.  My boys and I love to look through their scrapbooks from Christmases past as we hang these ornaments on the tree. 

Anyway, here is a sample of the ornament we will be making today:

The candy tin I used for this had a window in the front, so thought that naturally would lend itself to making a shaker!  So, before I attached the snow family image behind that window, I put a little white chunky glitter into the window.  The top of the tin is basically Kiwi Kiss in color, so I ended up pulling out some paper from last year's I Wish Simply Scrappin Kit to create the piece for the front and the band to go around the outside of the tin.  Also could not resist using a Little Felt Flurry with a half pearl to dress up the front a bit.  I think I may have to go back and add some bling to the centers of the snowflakes on the Designer Paper using Crystal Effects and Chunky Glitter, too. 

Inside it has 6 pages, attached together with some gold cord.  Here's what it looks like:

All ready for photos from Christmas this year!  I usually order a couple of 4 x 6 prints with six photos (each 2 x 3 inches) on it.  Then, either punch or cut those out and attach to the pages.  Will show you one from last year tomorrow so you can see what I mean!  These make wonderful gifts, too!

Want to make one of these, but missed out on signing up for the class?  I can put a kit or kits together for you.  (Each kit is $10, plus shipping, if needed, in the U.S. only).  Please contact me for more information!
