First of all, activate the gloss paint marker. Draw a faint outline of your design in pencil, such as “No. 2” or “White Tea” as shown here. It’s a good idea to draw faint horizontal lines to help keep the design straight. Using the black gloss paint marker, go over the outline of the numbers and letters before colouring them in.
In our example, we wrote “White Tea” with a white marker. Once everything is dry, the pencil lines are easy to remove with a rubber.
Fill the tin with tea and wrap decoratively in cellophane film. Tie a gift ribbon around it – and there, your last-minute gift is ready!
