Keepsake Tin for my Parents....

Here's Saturday's post a few hours early. I have TONS to do tomorrow so I wanted to make sure to get a post in. This tin I made for my parents to put pics of Daniel in. I like it and it was pretty easy to make. I thought that the colors were "boyish" enough but really I think they could go either way - kind of like green and yellow :) I wrote his name and birth date on the bottom right corner (if you can see it) and I REALLY didn't like it after I did it, but oh well. I felt like trying to cover it up would ruin it even more. Anyway, enjoy and I would love to hear what you think!

  1. Marie~ What a great idea. As a grandparent I know I love tons of pictures of my grandkids. What a great way to store them! Nice job!

  2. I think this tin is FANTASTIC!! The paper is great and you are right it could be use for a girl or boy. I like the name and date on the bottom, TFS.

  3. I think the writing on the paper looks great! It turned out better than I could have done it. I like the tin it is adorable!

  4. I think it turned out great! It looks fantastic!
