Decorated Canister

Hello again Everyone, Last night I tried something new for me. I'm sure some of you have done these but I hadn't.
I was at My Mother's apartment this week when she was going to throw away this tin. It looks like it's never been used. I told her if she gave it to me I'd make her something with it. This is what I came up with. It's a tin for keeping her laundry quarters in. Right now she's using a plastic cup that sits on top of her fridge. I think this will look much nicer.
I used Cosmo Cricket "Boyfriend" paper. I think it's so cute and the clothes hanging on the line makes it a perfect fit. The ribbon is "Dusty Durango" from Stampin Up. I cut a series of flowers to layer and put a decorative brad in the center. I think this would be cute in my laundry room too. I could use it to put the little pieces of hardware I find when I empty my husbands pockets. I think I'll make myself one too.
Thanks for taking a look, I hope to see you here again, Jana

this is a clever way to disguise the laundry money but the paper is a visual reminder of what is in the tin!
