You'll need your paper, embellishments, ribbon, stamps, etc. Decide if you're going to paint the tin or handle - you'll need acrylic paints for that. Then you need to decide how you're going to adhere the paper to the tin.
All my tins have been done with Mod Podge or Plaid Royal Coat adhesive. You'll also want some cheap foam brushes. Note - if you're going to use one of these liquid adhesives, you can't mix with any other adhesives or you'll get nasty bubbles.
You can also use sticky strip or red line tape. If you use that you'll likely need a fair amount.
Another option is to use Xyron if you have a Xyron machine (I'd think the 500 or 510 at least - anything else will be too small). You'll want the permanent adhesive rolls.
Once you have all the paper on and the liquid is dry (if you used that), you can use any number of adhesives to put on your embellishments - sticky strip, glue dots, diamond glaze, etc.
