Embossed CD Tin



I would have never thought to emboss on something other than paper, but when I read Heather's blog the other day, she had embossed on a tin. That very same day I received a tin in the mail that I ordered from Eclectic Paperie. So I gave it a try! You emboss it the same way that you would on paper. I used Snow Burst for the stamps. I inked them up in Versamark and stamped them onto the tin. Then I poured on silver embossing powder and melted it with the heat gun. The tin gets pretty warm so I set it aside while I made the belly band. I crimped a strip of Bashful Blue. Then I added a strip of Blizzard wrapping paper. I tied on some white organdy ribbon and added a scallop in the middle for a little something. I'm not sure what I'm going to put in this yet, but I have a lot of workshops coming up, so one of my hostesses just might be the lucky recipient!
