Tweet Stuff



Hello there! Jen here. I love it when I find items at the grocery that are packaged in containers that are alterable. I feel like I'm getting something for free. I had dish-washing soap on my grocery list and as I perused the shelf, I spotted a tin full of soap....and even better.... it was cheaper than all the other soaps! I snatched that tin right away and then I threw a couple more into my grocery cart for good measure. After a little sanding and painting, I added some paper, ribbon, stickers, and other fun embellishments. I changed that soap tin into a cute little container to hold all kinds of things...from recipe cards to hard candies.

Oh Jen, cute! So does the soap work well? :D I mean, if we are going to go out and buy it for the tin, I want to know if it works, lol.
I love what you did.

Don't ya wish they still sold bandaids in the tin? that was another cute freebie.

Hello!
I stumbled in your blog. I love the way you changed this tin box. Just amazing! Great job! I sometimes transofrm old boxes too: it's just great to see what we can do with old, dull, dirty boxes or free ones!
