With an altoids style tin I've embellished the front with Authentique's "Guide" from their Anchored collection.
Finally, a few sea shells are added as accents. The sides of the tin are embellished with strips of "Cruise".
Inside the tin is where we keep our memories safely tucked away.
It was a pleasant surprise to find that four little glass vials can fit snugly inside! Fill with small beach memories.
Using Authentique "details" stickers on the little glass vials, you can add the location and date that your beach findings were collected. Or, you could always fake it like I have and use Petaloo's bag of Sea Shells.
Hop over to the Petaloo and Authentique blogs this week for some more great beach/summer themed projects and a chance to win fabulous products from these amazing companies :)
