I have wanted to have a go at upcycling a coffee tin for a while now and finally got round to it today, making this bits 'n' bobs tin for Dad. These tins are great to use as they have no sharp edges, so this would be an ideal project to do with children for Father's Day. This tin has been decorated using Trimcraft's Travel Notes collection.
1. Cut a strip of blue card to the same depth as the tin and long enough to wrap around and overlap slightly at the back. Cut narrower strips of patterned paper to layer around the middle. I secured the paper around the tin using Cosmic Shimmer glue.
2. Wrap baker's twine around the tin and secure with tape. Add a homemade rosette (see my Belle and Boo Shutter card post for details of how to make these) with a personalised greeting.
This has found a home on my husband's desk already :-)
