  • Jameson tin (but you use whatever you have!)
  • ATG tape gun - I find the thin adhesive to be strong enough, but a strong adhesive like Mod Podge will work also
  • Graphic45 Curtin Call paper (any scrapbook paper will do)
  • Mini Scrabble tiles
  • Paper trimmer
  • Scissors


  1. The first thing I did was decide which papers from the Graphic45 Curtain Call collection I was going to use. I happen to love the vintage feel of all their papers, but I particularly like this line because I am also a musician.
  2. Once I figured that out, I set right to work covering the outside of the tin with a full sheet of 12x12 paper. As you can see, the tin is a little bit longer than the paper...

  6. Graphic45 not only sells their papers individually, but they also have these really cool paper packs. Inside the pack are 2 sheets of each paper design and then in the back there are these press outs that are dual sided. I used these....

  7. Actually, the one that has the musical notes had a piano keyboard on the underside. I ultimately went with that. I trimmed those with scissors and began to layer them vertically onto the tin.

  8. This image came right from the scrapbook paper itself. I cut that out, mounted it onto another coordinating sheet to make this panel which I then layered onto the tin.
