Movie Mania - Practical Scrappers Challenge

Sunday, March 21, 2010

It's Spring Break time here in Texas and I have enjoyed relaxing and catching up on all of the latest movies in theaters this week. One of the best movies that I've seen is Tim Burton's "Alice in Wonderland". I'm a big fan of Johnny Depp so this was a must see for me!

I've even been inspired to create this Family Movie Night Keepsake Tin for my friend's birthday. I've had the paper and some of the embellishments for a while now, so I entered this in the Practical Scrappers challenge to use something you've had for over a year. You can click here to visit Practical Scrappers to see all the challenge entries.

To make this tin I first ventured off to Home Depot and bought some empty paint cans. About a year ago, my scrapbooking pals and I went to our favorite scrapbook store called Archivers where I found some great designer paper. Me and My Big Ideas and My Mind's Eye make great paper.

After making and buying the right embellishments and matching colored ribbon, I ended up with the finished product. I lined the inside with matching tissue paper and filled it with movie goodies such as microwave popcorn, assorted candy, and a Blockbuster gift card. I hope she likes her gift. I've got to make more of these for gift giving throughout the year!

For more creative inspiration check out these cute movie gift ideas I found on Etsy. Featured here are: 
Alice In Wonderland Pouch at Pink Paisley1

Buttered Popcorn Stud Earrings at On Beyond Zebra

Film Vinyl Decal at Medium Control

I love your movie night idea especially the colour scheme and you have given me an idea for my daughters friend, they are having a sleep over as a birthday treat and each need to take something along, I think one of these filled with movie goodies will be appreciated. My favourite fills has to be the new Alice In Wonderland at the moment I saw it last week in 3d and it was fantastic.

My favorite move is Babe. Yep. The movie about the pig. I sobbed the first time I saw it and I've watched it a million times since then. It just hits that right note with me.

Your project is cute as can be! I loved Alice in Wonderland also and I'm not even that big of a Johnny Depp fan. He was fabulous as the Hatter.

The last movie I saw was Remember Me about a week ago and I loved it!
