I chose one of Stampin' Up!'s Silver Skinny Tins (108333) for my project.  They're on sale in the On-Line Clearance Rack (while supplies last).  You'll find the Clearance Rack by starting HERE and selecting the SHOP NOW button.  The "Clearance Rack" is listed on the left side bar.  Clearance products are heavily discounted and always changing!


  • Stampin up silver brads Skinny tins are reusable and perfect for delivering a set of homemade note cards or small gifts.  Using a Mini Glue Dot, you could attach a gift card inside.
  • To line up the trio of brads like soldiers at attention, I was armed with a Paper Piercing Tool and Template.
  • Stampin' Up!'s Exclusive Scallop Square Bigz Clear Die measures.  4 3/8" x 4 3/8".  I love it as a layer or imagine how cute it would be as a photo mat.
