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.
