Littlest Pet Shop Tin

My son has a lot of friends that are girls and they are always playing with the Littlest Pet Shop animals.  They are so cute.  I turned an old Altoids mint tin into a fun getaway for one of his friends as a present.

 
I used Bella Blvd. patterned paper that had a tropical theme to create this getaway.
 
 
First I covered the inside as well as the outside of the Altoids tin with patterned paper.

 
I cut out the palm tree and some clouds to create a little scene in the top lid.

 
For the bottom lid I mad a little bucket and spade for her to play with.
 
I had so much fun making this little present.  When my son saw it he asked me to make another one for another friend.  I think I see a lot of these in my future lol.
 
Thanks for stopping by.
