    For Valentines day, I received candy in a red heart shaped tin with a black scroll pattern on it. I think it is just beautiful but could not bring myself to throw it out. I’m just trying to figure out how best to utilize it. I also have another one from last year which has a raised pattern on it. Am seeing some great ideas but before I just start cutting and ruining them, I’m getting ideas. And some great ones!

  3. I just came across a beautiful floral tin at a thrift shop and can’t wait to make some earrings. Thanks for the inspiration!
