Without further ado: I present my Insect themed tin from Monkeythumb!
She did a Great job and I am just super pleased with my cute little tin Kiss

The Outside of the tin which has a picnic theme and little bead ants marching along the top! And, she sewed the coverlet.... Man! What craftmanship! I forgot to take a picture of the sides but she hand painted grass and little ants and on the bottom are button "feet".


Here is the inside with little dividers and tiny bead bugs inside!


This is a tiny embroidered patch.. so cute!


A card with Rhinoceros  beetles on it and Scrabble letters.


And lastly... a closeup of the tiny beads... We have a bee, a dragonfly, a butterfly just to name a few. They are so wee and pretty!



I love insects (duh!) and as you can see this is just perfect!

I hope Monkeythumb loves her tin as much as I love mine Grin

Thanks Tisha!! You're the best!

I received from Calsters last night. She chose my rabbit theme. As you can see, the outside is decorated with "rabbit food," and the contents were crafts supplies to create a garden for my rabbits to live: stickers, ribbon, buttons and fabric.


And inside: a family of happy bunnies.



Thank you so much, Callie, it's really cute! I already have plans for that fabric.

LOVE the beaded bugs!

I can't believe I missed the gallery. I really should pay more attention because I'm ALWAYS missing the gallery.

I cannot wait for my partner to get her tin.
