Guest Stamper: Michelle


Stampin' Up! currently is offering their charming turquoise storage tins (114673, $3.95) and silver skinny tins (104333, $1.95) for sale individually, while supplies last.  Click here for full details and loads of inspiration on how to use them.

I bought a supply of each but have yet to come up with something fresh.  No worries.  This week's Guest Stamper Michelle . . . came up with a big dose of clever for the blue tins.  In addition to her tastefully decorated box above, she created little shadow boxes to display items with magnets.  They are fantastic and I simply had to share!

In Michelle's own words, "My daughter and her friends like these. You can use the
magnets to attach photos or other memorabilia to the back wall, and
then display your 3-D items on the bottom edge to set a scene. For
example, you could put a birthday party photo on the back wall and a
party invitation, and then display the cake topper and a party favor on
the shelf. I can think of many possibilities!" 

Michelle made the magnets with flat bottomed glass marbles and
magnets she bought at Michael's (paper used is Stampin' Up! Rainbow Sherbet Designer Series, 112471).

Just think of the cute storage possibilities for ribbon, paper scraps, embossing supplies and more.

  1. WOW – Michelle – love what you’ve done with the tin – wonderful idea!!! I have three of those flying around I might have to transform them for my girls!!! ~TFS~

  2. This is adorable! I was wondering if anyone altered these tins to store Cuttlebug Embossing Folders or Nestabilities. Are they a good fit?
