Instructions: The finished size of this project is, 10 cm x 11.5 cm. 8.5 cm across the circle base. Please note all the stamping is done with the gold embossing powder. Begin with washing the tin can. Because all cans are not equal, you will need to cut the cardstock to fit your own can measurement. Cut: 1 outer and 1 inner cover from the green cardstock. Cut an outer and inner circle also from the green cardstock. Taking the border die, cut a strip to fit the can top edge with a 1.5 cm over lap. Adhere the cardstock to the out side of the can. Place and adhere the border to the can edge. Spray a little with water to help get the cardstock to fold and bend better if needed. When dry adhere the can lining and inner circle. Ink the can edge.

Stamp, die cut, color and shape the leaf border. Adhere this border to the inside can edge to hide the cardstock joins. Adhere the under bottom circle in place. Stamp, die cut x 2 of the fence. Color the fences with the Bundled sage and Ground espresso inks. Trim the fence to fit the outside of the can, apply foam dots or tape to the back then attach. Stamp, color, die cut and shape the Poinsettias, ice skate boots and mittens. Adhere these in place with glue and foam dots. When all is dry and secure, apply stickles to make it all pop.
