One of the many things that rock about Christmas-time is the vast array of chocolates & cookies that change hands. Along with many of them, of course, come tins. No self-respecting crafter exists who doesn’t need more places to stash their assortments of bits-and-bobs, so this is clearly a storage boom-time for us.
Normally I would just use the tins as they come, but I’m trying to live a more gracious life these days (by which I mean putting my microwaved meals into dishes rather than eating them straight out of the carton). Plus, spray-paint makes me feel powerful & like I have agency in my life. So I took these—
— and turned them into these:
Now, on balance I probably should have just left them like this, but felt compelled to add orange ribbon because:
A) I had some
B) I never know when enough is enough.
. . . Still, they are a nice reminder of the recent holiday season, and a cheery addition to the sea of clutter that is my craft area.
