"Decorative Tins"

These are recycled tins that had prima flowers in them. After the tins were empty, my friend was just going to throw them away, so I ask for them. I knew I could decorate them up for Christmas!

After adding some ribbon, decorative paper and prima embellishments, they are ready to fill with treats for the perfect gifts!

For my scallop circles on top, I used new papers from the Christmas collections of Cosmo Cricket and Basic Grey. The Prima embellishments are from their Christmas collection, as well.

Love these! Prima makes the most fun containers to recycle. I think your Bazzill will be here Monday but not sure about the Glimmer Mist- will let you know!

Keep it up- you do great work!

Blogger won't let me post- go figure!

Now I'm sorry that I gave you the tins (which Jenn gave me). I could have done this.
