Small candy tins are calling my name...

I guess I have a habit of collecting 
all kinds of small sturdy containers,
with the idea of repurposing them...

These small tins, that once held candy,
now hold my pins or other 
small stitching supplies,
or 'whatnots'.

I have these sitting around my Studio...
they always make me smile
when I reach for one of them.

  2. I love your tins, I also love working with wool. Did you use cotton fabric on the bottom of the wool before attaching to the tin?

  7. What a great idea. I have tins and heart shaped boxes that I hang onto and I love and I like how creative you are, not to mention getting wool and working with wool is always just the best.

  11. I am a collector of tins also. Was just given a bunch of the eclipse tins but not sure what to add to them. Would you share what you have done with this type of thing?

  12. Thanks for posting this. I recently found some tins I had collected and was wondering what to do with them. I am using them to organize some of my office supplies and now I can make them look nice too.
