First, I picked a printed paper and traced the tin (top and bottom). Double-sided paper looks great with one design on top and the coordinating side on the bottom. Next I cut and ran the pieces through a Xyron machine (from Ben Franklin Crafts) to apply a sticky backing. After adhering the pieces to the tin, a lace trim was added to the lid edge and ribbon was attached to the tin bottom with Merikan double stick tape. A mini calendar (from Vippies) was off-set on the lid top and flowers were added.
