A Little Girls Dream.... To be a Ballerina!

I know several little girls that would love to get a ballerina in a tin!
This easy to make tin would be a great place to tuck a gift card or a little bit of green for a special little someone!!!
To start: give the metal tin a base color.  This tin is covered with Espresso Alcohol Ink

Cut pattern paper to fit inside... Pattern Papers from Mailbox Muse Kit Baby Baby Baby.  Add gold bead around the edge papers for a finished look.
 Add wings to the ballerina.  Cut half of the wings from the KUNZE German Scrap Butterfly.

Tint KUNZE German Scrap Butterfly that will go on the lid.  With ink, then dip in clear embossing powder and set with heat gun, give the butterfly an enamel look.
Adhere papers with Tacky Glue. Add Geman Scrap Fringe to the inside top of tin create a stage for our Ballerina.

The Ballerina is on a tiny block behind a layer of paper... looks like she is floating!!!

On the out side add fibers around the edges of the tin with Tacky Glue.
On the top of the tin embellish with KUNZE German Scrap!!! 

KUNZE German Scrap
Clear Embossing Powder
Espresso Alcohol Ink or other medium to paint
