Note: Before beginning find center of tin, fill tin with old telephone books or anything of no value to give the tin a rigid area for drilling. Drill a 5/16” hole in center mark. Remove papers or old books before proceeding.
1. Sand design from tin. Remove any burs from the drilled hole with wire cutting tool. Apply three coats of Unbleached Titanium Gesso on the tin to cover the design. Allow to dry between coats.

2. Stamp “Heart Flowers” with timber brown across the bottom of tin and the “Butterfly Trio” twice on the top of tin. Allow to dry before proceeding.
3. Activate H20’s with a fine mist of water, use watercolor brush and H20’s to apply color to “Butterfly Trio” and “Heart Flowers”. When dry, add Sydney’s Best and Berry Sweet Glitter Glues to butterflies and Berry Sweet Glitter Glue to heart flower tops. 

4. Stamp an extra butterfly with rich cocoa on white card stock, color with H20’s, let dry. Add glitter glue to butterfly and then cut out and apply to tin. Add antennas to the butterfly with black pigment ink pen. 
5. Stamp and watercolor “Daisy” on white card stock. Cut-out and adhere flower to handle. Apply glitter glue to daisy.

6. Stamp “Kyra” and “Bryony” with rich cocoa ink. Let dry completely. Watercolor both images, cut away all white areas with sharp precision scissors, add adhesive and then adhere the fairies to the tin.
7. Add Big Glitz Sparkling Ice glitter glue to wings of both fairies.

8. Add Berry Sweet Swirl Glitter Glue to hearts on the “Kyra” fairy.

9. Stamp one of the “Mushrooms” on white card stock. Paint with H20’s. Cut out and then adhere next to “Bryony” fairy. Apply Berry Sweet glitter glue on mushroom.

10. Add battery to clock works; instructions will be on the package if you need how to apply the hands and second hand.
11. I enjoyed making this tin to share with you. This gift is going to my daughter. She has fairies throughout her Victorian home.
Thanks for looking! This is something I made for RRA ezine in 2009. Hope you enjoy seeing how it is made.
