2. Optional - To add even more texture and interest to your purse, emboss larger letters using the Cuttlebug Cut and Emboss system.
3. Adhere all letters to the tin, starting with larger sized words.
Use individual letters to fill smaller spaces. Modge Podge is a great glue for this step.
4. Paint over all letters using a light brown acrylic paint.
5. Add detail and depth to the tin using white, dark brown and teal paints. Use a stencil brush to apply small amounts at a time and rub them in to blend well.
6. Coat entire tin with a matte or satin finish sealer.
7. Attach flowers, beads and ribbons to tin handle using glue gun and wire to firmly secure. Use a ribbon to attach a word plate to the front of the tin and adhere in place with glue gun.
