Altered Tea Can

My DH is a tea drinker and for some reason he was saving these tins his tea came in. I was cleaning out the kitchen cabinets yesterday and found them and thought what a great project these would make. I was thinking they could be altered as new with the tea still inside and given as a little gift. Or, they're a good size for some cookies or candy or even a pencil holder for my son's teacher's desk. I'm sure there are a ton of ideas for this little can. So, I made one. There's no stamping on this one, just designer series paper from the Dashing collection and some ribbon. I didn't have a lot of time to make this one so I kept it pretty simple. I did get to use my Crop A Dile though. It went through the sides of the tin like butter!! I love that tool. Then I thought the top needed a little more so I found this button in my stash and cut off the shank and used a glue dot to stick it to the top. Thanks for stopping by and I hope your Friday is wonderful and that your weekend is even better.
