Hurray! I accomplished something crafty - other than jewelry making - this week!
This sort of project always comes about because the need is there. I saved this tin after I drank the last of the tea this winter. I only drank it during winter because this tea was so amazing (and called winter fruit blend) and I wanted it to last. I admit, I cried a little when it was gone and stubbornly used the last bits of it even though it was way too small for my tea strainer and filled my cup with tea leaves. *sigh*
Still...the tin smells amazing! And the paper label peeled right off, thank goodness!
I raided my paper stash and discovered this cute blue and brown polka-dot. I measured around my tin, cut my paper to width and glued it on with a light amount of regular white glue applied with a small, old, ratty paint brush. White "school glue" generally washes right out but why risk ruining a nice brush, right?
As you can tell I so needed something to store my bookmark collection. Even my wider ones fit and I can dangle the string kind out to see one side. Perfect and it takes up much less room than the box I was considering.
Now back to my cleaning and organizing...
