Covered DVD Tin


These are so much fun.... and easy! Metal DVD tins from eP
! This one is covered with Stampin'Up!'s new double sided paper called Darling Doodles. I totally love SU!'s new double sided papers!! LOVE THEM!! :)

I also used the new chipboard
On Board Lots of Letters. I'm so impressed with how well they take color. The square part of the J was just rubbed on top of my Groovy Guava Classic Ink Pad. The J part is dabbed in Whisper White Craft Ink. I'm also digging those new Jumbo Eyelets. They set like buttah with my Crop-a-dile baby.

I put together the front piece (cut at 5 x 7 1/4), and sewed across that strip (rounded the corners with the corner rounder punch), added the J and the ribbon, then used my snail adhesive to attach to the front.

I did the same for the inside, but added a pocket, then adhered it down with lots of Snail.

Covered the notepad with a bit of paper, some ribbon and a little flower charm. Then added a pen with some matching paper inside.

I was lucky enough to get two of these from friends. I was SO impressed, I just had to get some too! Thanks Lana and Gina for the inspiration!! :)

Have a super weekend everyone!!!

Love it love it! So great. My only question is where did you find pads that fit inside? Did you have to cut the paper down, or do they make it that size? Thanks for all the inspiration! You rock!!
