Altered Tin Can

I altered the empty tin can (..I have a lot and more of this altered project coming soon..) to make it into Christmas gift box. Paper is from Imaginisce, added butterfly, cross, the flower is a handmade using Spellbinder classic circle scallop dies (I use the smallest) layered and bind them using a brad in the centre, crunch and shaped into flower. I also added Plaid pearl glitters to the edge of the petal. Tag is embossed with Cuttlebug Swiss Dot embossing folder. Under the flower is the big snowflake punch out using Martha Stewart snowflake punch. I made the can lid by cutting a circle from card stock and finish it off with MS pinking scallop punch border and also with a gold grossgrain ribbon.
Challenges entered:
1. Scrap, Laugh, Love - altered tin and must have butterfly
2. Winter Wonderland - 2 dp, 1 snowflake, 1 ribbon, 1 charm (i use 2 different Imaginisce paper from their Christmas collection paper).
3. Joan's Garden - a tree,  something cut out with a die, an embossed object but not background, brads
