A little Flourishes Challenge.....

Hi all and Happy Friday! The Flourishes gals were given a challenge from our "Boss Lady" Jan Marie. She sent us all one of these cute little alterable tins....
... And told us to get those creative juices flowing! She also told us that from time to time she'd be issuing a surprise challenge to share some fun projects out there in blog land! I regret to inform my blog community, I failed at this challenge (wiping a tear from the corner of my eye).  My day job has been somewhat grueling so, I will have to post what I have got cooking at a later date.I have an idea... I promise!!!

HOWEVER.... I have, over the years, done some fun things with these little tins and I thought -- what a great way to give you all a news-you-can-use re-run!

First up, I have THIS ATC Note Card Container..... (click the link for directions!) These little cards even have their own envelopes! I found THESE tiny ones here that are just perfect for the inside of this tin. I sued Flourishes' From the Desk of set, which was a perfect set for this project!

A Calling Card Tin...... I used Flourishes Thank You set for this little number! 

And..... A Candy Holder.... using Flourishes Strawberries set! You'll have to click that link to see the whole project! ;-)

Please stop by the rest of the Flourishes gals to see what kind of fun they whipped up! AND, if you feel so inclined, you can snap up some of the tins in the Flourishes store HERE to create your own fun!

All of your projects are beautiful! I especially love the look of the first one!

I remember when I was a little girl my grandma had a bunch of calling cards. They were very popular back then. This is the prettiest business card I have seen and perfect for the tin. Great job.
