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.

I am off now for a Kids Christmas Card Workshop. They should churn out a few cards between them all. Will post some photos from the workshop today later.
