Happy Tenth Anniversary!!! woot woot.
I am new here, but already loving this site. I have used tin as the star in my flower vase craft.

Basic Materials needed for making paper flowers and tin decoration:
   Rose flower template drawing
   Scrapbook background papers
   Tooth pick
   Color buttons (green,orange,yellow,red and blue)
   Black grams and Yellow pigeon peas (Eastern spices)
   3D Sunflower stickers  

Rose Flower Steps:
   Draw petals and color it as required. It doesn't have it to artistic. You can use free samples available on the internet. But if you need inspiration for drawing, please refer below.

   Glue the petal #1 at the bottom and roll it with the Tooth pick.
   Repeat the same process for petal#2 and petal#3.

   Add glue to the center of petal#4 and place center petals to it.

   Repeat the same process for petal#5, 6 and 7.
   Then add the glue to the center of leaves and add the rose into center.

   You can create as many roses as you want.

Tin Decoration Steps: (Tin 1)
   I have used two tins. For the first one, I used the roasted cashews nut from Walmart.  Smiley
   Glue the green color scrapbook paper around the tin.

   Then paste three blue buttons six times at the bottom of the tin with gap in between.
   Glue the green buttons at the center and above the blue buttons.
   Place the yellow and red buttons with little gap and above other buttons.
   Finally paste the curve shaped red scrapbook paper to the top of the tin.

Tin Decoration Steps: (Tin 2)
   I have bought another tin from Michaels and kept it as the base over which the decorations were done.
   Paste the green color scrapbook paper to the two front sides of the tin.
   Then glue four green buttons each side of the tin.
   Place the 3D sunflower sticker to the center of the scrapbook side and orange buttons to the center of the green buttons.

   At last, stick the Black grams as shown.

And voila, we have two superstar tins to decorate your cupboard!!!
Let me know what you fine folks think about it!!
