Decorated Maya Road Tin

Decorated Maya Road Tin

You will need:

~empty Maya Road tin


~some sort of flourish stamp (or you can draw your flourishes freehand)

~Stazon ink



~glue dots

~flowers,buttons,brads, ribbon, Stickles to decorate

1. Open the tin. Position some foam under the cover.2.Stamp the flourishes in the corner of the clear window (or draw some freehand).

3. Using a needle or some other tool, poke holes following the pattern of the flourishes.

4. With some thread and needle, stitch the pattern. To end the thread I put a little glue dot on the back. You can tie a knot to end off, if you wish.5. Once the stitching is done, you can embellish with flowers, buttons, brads, ribbon, etc.This is my finished tin. I added Stickles to the flowers and used Liquid Pearls to decorate.I also added a bow to the handle.
