Valentine gift

Maybe a bit early but I made a Valentine gift using a Rick St. Dennis MFA digi. It's not to difficult to make. I used a cookie tin, see pic:
then I coloured the Christmas bonnet 1898 digi , I showed her to you before but here she's is again
Now the hardest part of altering the cookie tin is to fuzzy cut the image LOL. Now first some pics of the result and the I'll tell you what I did.

First I cut out a circle of designer paper that will fit the lid, I inked the edges with distress ink and put some ink on the rest of the paper to gve it an aged look.
The edge of the lid I covered with ribbon (using double sided tape).
Then I glued the digi on the paper circle.
The tin was covered by Tim Holtz paper saying: Valentines

hope you like how it turned out,

I will enter the following challenges: (the cookie tin was a left over)
