All dressed up!

I purchased this adorable tin of chocolate covered pretzels for my sons teacher for Christmas. The tin is too cute to cover with wrapping paper or to put it a bag, so I dressed it up a bit to make it ready to deliver.

(view from top)

I started with a long length of 3/8 inch grosgrain ribbon which I tied in a big bow at the top of the tin. Then, using 3/4 inch x 6 inch pieces of dsp, I made a cute flower/bow, a technique I learned from StampNation. I also made a tag with the same paper which I tied around the bow with Linen Thread. So quick and easy and really dresses up this gift perfectly!!!

Thanks for stopping in!
