I don't know about you, but I keep these things forever.  I've got cookie tins, and chocolate tins, and those stupid tins that AOL sends CDs in sometimes.  I can't bring myself to throw them away. 

I'm not a pack rat, I hate keeping junk in the house. . .so WHY do I hold on to these tins?  WHY?

I tell myself that I'll make something really, REALLY useful from them one day.

Let's make it a challenge. 

I challenge us to finally, seriously DO SOMETHING with the tin box that held those delicious gingersnaps for that too-brief period of time. 

MAKE something from that old Band-aid box.   

Put that tin to USE!

I would love that!  I have a new cookie tin from work (mmm, free cookies from vendors!), and it needs some kind of use.  Tins always seem like they should be super useful, yet I always end up pitching them or chucking them to the Goodwill.  I'd love to see what craftsters can come up with - something more creative than just "decoupage it and keep random odds and ends in it."
