What to do with an empty tin?

First I painted the outside of the tin with white acrylic. Then I cut out images from some vintage  paper a friend gave me. I used gel medium to glue everything down. The antique look was done by rubbing an ink pad on the acrylic paint.

The leaves are stickers which I then added gel on top. To add some dimension inside the tin, I added a green bead to hold a ribbon flower and added a tie tack of a little race car. Since my dad raced back in the 60's I could see the "vintage connection"  I also tied it all together using a yellow and green color scheme.

Every side of the tin has something on it, to keep it interesting.  $15 plus postage
