Gruen, gruen, gruen sind alle meine Kleider…

Hello friends, sorry I usually don’t write my blog in German but with this one I just had to because the tin I made just reminds me always of this old German lullaby my mother used to sing to me when I was a child.

I kept the green tin from one of our Christmas chocolates from “Sanders”. First I thought I would keep the tin to use it on a project for this years Christmas but than St. Patrick's Day came to mind and I started to look for matching papers (I used Magnolia ink Mini “Green Love” and “Calla of Paris”). My mothers favorite color is green and am going to sent the tin to her around Mothers Day to Germany, I will add a handmade green scarf with a lime green Pandora charm.

Here are a few detail shots.
I used a lace around the tin that has a flower pattern and an other thin ribbon to look like the flowers are growing from grass. Hemp was added too and I tied a bow and topped off with a orange button. Several flowers were sandwiched with leaves and a die cut from a Magnolia flower die.

The rim of the tin is decorated with a string of pearl stickers, I did not have the exact width of ribbons and I like that the green of the tin still shows through. To make the tag I used Magnolia “So Lovely” die several round circle punches to cut my sentiment out and added little dots around it with some Liquid Pearls. Most of my embellishments have some Stickles on them.
