Pins and Things Decopatch Tin

Pins And things Decopatch box
I used an old Altoids tin to make this little box for my daughters sewing basket, covering it with Decopatch paper No. 455

I learnt from my disaster a few weeks ago not to cover the  the part where the lid rim covers the sides with the paper, I tried to do this as neatly as I could, but think I could have done it a bit better.

I printed off the label and then cut it out using a Nestabilities label die, which I stuck onto the lid, followed by several  applications of  clear glossy varnish all over covered the tin.

Inside I put some green felt on the bottom and on the inside the lid to make it look all posh and professional!
