taylored expressions - hinged tins for gift giving


Hey everyone! I have some gift packaging ideas to share with you using hinged tins and some other products from Taylored Expressions to share with you today. This project is also featured over on the Taylored Expressions blog.

Watch the video below to see how I put together my own decorated tins to package up small gifts for the holidays:

There's not a lot of stamping involved for this project. For the stamped sentiments on the tins, I used some Mini Strips - Holiday sentiments that I had already stamped for a previous project. I love that I had these sentiments ready to go and they worked perfectly for these tins!


There are several die collections designed to work perfectly with the hinged tins: The Gift Card Frame die, the Tin Topper die, and the On Display Tin Insert die. These dies take the guesswork out of cutting and measuring your patterned paper and cardstock to decorate the tins!


Your small gifts are perfectly displayed in the tins using the On Display Tin Insert die. I added the optional earring holes for the earrings and there is also a die option for displaying a necklace in the die collection. For the enamel pin I just pushed the pin right through the insert piece and added the pin back to secure it. By the way, that heart pin? It was a special gift for our Stamp Joy 2019 attendees. You might just see that pin again in the future... *wink!*


You can decorate and embellish your tins with die cuts or stamped images however you would like and you can even customize your decor to the gift recipient! I used the Winter Greens die collection to add the red bows and pine branches to my tins. I scattered some snowflakes on the tins for a fun finishing touch using the Little Bits - Snowflake Confetti die collection.


Thank you so much for stopping by today. I have some new crafty inspiration coming your way tomorrow!
