"Love is a Precious Gift" Tin — By: Susan Cobb


Designer Tip: Great for giving heartfelt gifts or for keeping love letters and special memorabilia, Susan's vintage-inspired tin makes a lovely space to hold what's near and dear to you.


  1. Ink the edges of a 7"x3 1/2" piece of mauve striped paper (stripes running vertically). Stamp butterfly wings on the right side of the paper, leaving about 1/2" of space between the wings. Ink the edges of a 7"x1" strip of mauve rose paper and glue it just under the bottom edge of the striped paper. Glue the papers to the front of the tin, aligning the rose strip with the bottom of the tin.
  2. Ink the edges of the “Love is a precious gift” quote. Mat the quote on burgundy texture paper, trim to 1/8" and ink the edges. Glue the quote to the left side of the stripe paper.
  3. Add the “heaven on earth” sticker in the space between the butterfly wings. Add the “our story” sticker below the quote, overlapping the seam between the striped and rose papers.
  4. Knot various ribbons around the pail's handle.
