I wanted to cover the top with buttons that matched the colours in the yellow material. Alan from Acies suggested that I use a resin. I put this off for a long time as I was not sure how to do this exactly. (The intruction sheet that came with the resin was very long. I not a fan of reading instuctions.)
I made a variety of cards to go in the tin.
In my challenge pack I was given double sided green cardstock and maroon shimmer paper plus the two materials the yellow stripy one which I put around the tin and the blue material which I used on the inside of my tin. ( This was my least favourite item in the Challenge Pack and only used it because I had to.)
Below you can see both the green and the maroon that I had to use.

Some of the group made this design using the punched flowers, some used circles, some used Christmas trees. Have a go at home with a punch that you have and put it into a tree shape and there is a very quick and easy Christmas Card.
This is one of the handmade Christmas cards. I think that this design was a favourite for quite a few in the group.

What about this rain we are having? Isn't is amazing.....I am glad that I didn't rush in and wash the car....More mud to add to the collection.
Use this weather to your advantage and make some Christmas Cards or handmade Christmas gifts (below are a few ideas......Maybe a tin covered with Christmas theme scrapbooking papers and filled with Christmas treats or a cute little button pot) It is only 71 days until Christmas now.
Have a great rainy day

I attended a scrapping day at Injune and took part in the Patchwork Challenge. It came in a brown paper bag (all very mysterious) and had some instructions on the front.
The instructions were along the lines of ....it has to be useful......have a verse or word on it........use most of each item........
The bag contained..........a small square of material with cupcakes and cakes on it............chocolate embroidery thread............and some beads.....
This is what I made...... a recipe box......it is useful, I have laminated my favourite recipes so that they can be wiped clean, it has my favourite verse.......I'd give up chocolate but I am no quitter.....

I know how Christmas sneaks up on us all. So get inspired and make your cards sooner rather than later. Here are some ideas to get you inspired. Have fun.
A little bit different, a little bit retro!! ...But it has something about it. I like it....GS
Sorry about the long shadows in the picture. This one is a little more modern. You could add a cute owl or bird to the branch of this one.
Maybe even turn it into a birthday card.
