Revamped biscuit tin

Take one biscuit tin from the Lake District. Eat the biscuits. Then the fun begins... this was a real last-minute job the night before my Mini Catalogue launch. Yes, back in April! I’ve only just found the pic and realised I haven’t posted it on my blog.

I just covered the tin with paper from the Sweet Pea stack and added a ruffle of ribbon attached to a strip of paper. It doesn't need much because this gorgeous paper does all the hard work for you! 

Paper: Sweet Pea Paper Stack

  1. This is so cute and you would never know you started with a tin under there.

  2. What a great idea! I love love love the ruffle you added.

  3. This is lovely, it's always satisfying to use something that could get thrown out for crafting!

  4. Wow, recycling! And done so cleverly. Lake District is such a pretty area to live in. I love the subtle colours on your box. What did you do on the lid?

  5. Oh, very cute! I especially like the ruffled ribbon.


Thank you so much for taking the time to comment.
