Embellished tins

I had an idea to turn ordinary tins into pretty storage containers for my craft supplies!
 
 This is what the tins looked like before!
 
I started out with the intention of simply doing a decoupage with the paper ephemera and, everything just evolved from there. Before you could say 'podge' I had the glue gun heating up and I was rummaging through my stash and plucking out trims and buttons!

 

 
The paper ephemera and adorable fairy images are from The Graphics Fairy.
All the embellishments are from my own stash!
 

Hope I didn't go overboard this time...lol   
 
Off to fill my boxes with pretties...see ya soon!
