Big Flowers Tin of Magnets

There is a lot going on in this little Altoid type tin!
First, the tin is 2 1/2" x 2", it's very small. I ordered them from I ordered 48 and they were .64 each. I'm sure you get a better price the more you order.
I covered the tin with Cutie Pie Designer paper on top and added two different paper strips to the edges. The flowers are stamped with Big Flowers and Little Flowers for the centers. I used the super cool Build A Brad Kit on the centers; it is simply a MUST HAVE!! You stamp your image, punch with 1/2" circle punch, glue to the brad top then cover it with the clear dome self adhesive sticker and viola! you have custom made brads!! You gotta try them!
I punched the Big Flowers out with the 1 3/8" circle punch and mounted them on a 1 3/8" circle I punched out from a business card magnet. You can use full page magnets if you have them. It is so easy to punch through them, I thought it would be harder. I mounted one of the magnets on a scallop and used it for the decoration on top of the tin. The magnets stick to the inside of the tin for a cute presentation when you open it. I placed the rest of them in the bottom of the tin.
This was such a fun project, I've got to make more :)
