Quick and easy gift card tins.

I made these a while back, they were featured in the Ready, Set Create August issue so I can post them now.  I used the Lindsay's Stamp Stuff Steampunk Style stamp set along with a couple of her freebies to make these.  They were so easy to make, I just printed them out, traced the top of the gift card tin and cut them out.  I added some Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist Turquoise Blue, Deep Plum and Ranger's Tim Holtz Distress Ink Tea Dye and I even embossed one with Stampin Up Texture Plates Kit 4 Distressed.  I glued the card stock to the tins with Art Glitter Glue Dries Clear and voila, I was done. 
You are invited to stop by Lindsay's blog The Frugal Crafter to see what she has to share today and to pick up your free image.  My DT Sisters have some awesome inspiration  to share also.  They never stop amazing me!  Thanks for looking.  ~Diane
