Pre-holiday Tin Idea

Here is a cute preholiday altered idea for you! I love these little rolled cookies- and definately consider them holiday fare. So if you have a container like this- or something similar- here is a way to reuse it.

I took the liner out of the inside- and after inking the edges, I added it around the container. Glue Arts was so generous with the Pursuit of Craftyness team, I used their Glue Glider Pro gun to stick everything on! There was even a bottom liner that I used on the top of the lid as well.


I received some Basic Grey in a package from Cards Mag( Indian Summer)- so of course- I wanted to play with some new stuff! My sister Kelly came down for a visit and gifted me with this fab felt border package-( Michaels). I cut one strip in half for the top and bottom borders. I added in this funky lime green cardstock as well.

I cut a circle of the dark brown, then added punched circles to make a large flower. I added some BG leaf and letter stickers. Then a button with the twine I wrapped around the container. And a couple extra craft supply buttons.


For the perfect finishing touches- I went back to my Bobunny supplies, and found the is my favorite sticker, plus the bracket sticker layered with the colorful tag on the tin lid. I added more buttons and finished with a mulberry flower from a silk flower I took apart.
what to do with this tin? fill it with yummy chocolates, homemade goodies or a tall candle. gift it to a friend, teacher, neighbor, or coworker, or keep it for yourself!
