My dad makes and repairs guitars for a living, and often has customers that like to tip him with things like bottles of fancy scotch.  Mom hates having to find a place to recycle them...I said i'll take them and figure something out!  Here's the before:



Original idea was to decorate them, drill a hole in the lid and use them to thread yarn through while knitting/crocheting...FAIL on the hole drilling idea but still nifty for storing smaller balls of yarn and scraps!  This one was super easy, 12 x 12 scrapbook sheet fit almost perfectly, just had to shave a teeny bit off the edge.



Orange one was made for my sister, the Craftster rock star lanikins.  I found a Family Circle magazine from 1978 that had these awful crochet patterns and just had to share the weirdness.  So funny to me because it is completely not like lanikins, she is very "hot pink and skulls"...definitely not lime green and orange.  She thought it was hilarious though Smiley



Thanks for looking!

I LOVE MY CHEESY TIN!!!!!!  And, I have to say this, not as a sister, but as a crafter...this thing is VERY well done...no bubbles, or stroke marks or anything!!!  It is going to be my safety eye container.  THANKS AGAIN!!!

I really like both of them. Did you sand the tin or anything before you glued the paper on?
