A tin beautifully decorated with flowers, pretty paper and ribbon adds interest and dimension to a plain metal tin. This reusable container is a great way to hold a gift or food items. Using Scotch® Gift Wrapping Tape allows the flower stems to lift off the lid as if they were growing in a garden. This is my latest design I created for Scotch Brand.

- Using Scotch® Precision Scissors, cut V shapes in even intervals around the paper plate. Round the edges to create petals so it looks like a flower.
- Cut the floral scrapbooking paper into a circle shape the size to fit inside the flower plate and attach with Scotch® Craft Glue Stick.
- Cut a piece of the textured scrapbooking paper the size to fit the top of the lid. Attach with Scotch® Quick Dry Tacky Glue. Glue the floral ribbon around the base of the tin, overlapping the ends.
- Glue the flower plate to the top of the lid with Scotch® Quick-Dry Tacky Glue. Let dry. Glue the satin ribbon around the sides of the lid, overlapping the ends.
- Remove two of the flowers from the stems and cut the other two flowers stems different lengths — one 2-1/2” and the other 3-1/2”. Bend the ends of each of two flower stems at an angle about 1” from the end.
- Apply Scotch® Quick-Dry Tacky Glue to bottom of the bent ends of the stem. Attach the bent stem ends to the lid and secure with strips of Scotch® GiftWrap Tape. Glue the remaining two flowers around the flower stems to fill in the holes.
