It's hip to recycle, right - therefore, it's hip to craft. Let me explain: Before there were craft stores where we can buy all the supplies we need to make something, we used to "make things" from supplies we had around the house. I remember creating a whole ensemble of chorus line dolls made from wooden beads, scraps of lace, ribbon and pipe cleaners. Since it's no longer hip to smoke a pipe, these are now known as chenille stems. Cardboard tubes, fabric from old clothes, yarn and more was all fair game for making something and making something from nothing is the fun part of the game. Let me show you what I mean. We'll start with this:
You should definitely not throw these away because look what you can make:
Cover tins with scraps of paper, ribbon and embellishments for a fun gift tin. The final look is determined by the paper and how it's decorated. Sand the tin lightly then spread tacky glue over the surface. Lay the paper onto each side; let dry thoroughly then trim away excess.
So, don't throw those tins away! They'll always be in "mint" condition and will make great gifts, with or without the mints. Y'all come back now......
BTW: Don't forget we'll be announcing the next giveaway on 0404!!!
