Moon and Stars Gift Tins Instructions Designed by Cheri Carlson
Whether you're looking for a place to keep your rings or just want a unique birthday gift container, these stunning tins may just upstage the treasures you place inside.
Spray paint each tin the color of your choosing. Let dry overnight.
Moon Tin: Step One: Fold the tips of the brass fancy wings filigree to fit the top of the 2 oz container, but do not attach it to the tin yet. Glue the antique brass round donut to the center of the filigree with Gem-Tac permanent adhesive. Glue the Swarovski12mm rivoli in light siam to the inside of the donut. Allow to dry.
Step Two: Attach one end of approximately 2-inches of 22 gauge bronze wire, to the antique brass small moon charm with a wrapped loop. For help with wrapped loops visit the Handy Tips section of the Learning Center. Thread the Swarovski 4mm faceted round light siam onto the wire. Use a wrapped loop to attach the remaining wire to the filigree.
Step Three: Attach the filigree to the top of the tin using the Gem-Tac adhesive. Enjoy!
Star Tin: Step One: Glue the Swarovski flatback crystals to the antique brass beautiful pendant using Gem-Tac permanent adhesive. For help with gluing flatbacks visit the Handy Tips section of the Learning Center. The SS7 crystals fit the top layer of the pendant, while the SS9 crystals fit on the two larger layers.
Step Two: Using 2-inches of 22 gauge bronze wire, make a wire spiral at one end. For help making a wire spiral visit the Handy Tips section of the Learning Center. Thread the Swarovski 14mm faceted round crystal AB onto the wire. Thread the wire through the pendant and bend the end of the wire to secure it into place.
Glue the pendant into place on the 4 oz round container using Gem-Tac adhesive. Enjoy!
