Repurposed Spice Tins for Thanksgiving

Hi Friends,

Well it's almost Thanksgiving and I was thinking

today- YES ! There's time to sneak in another project-

It only took about 15 min.

I used some tins from my collection.

If you don't have a tin -no problem-

How about a spool of thread or alphabet blocks or scrap of wood.

Use any picture or card you like-

Here are the two that I used.

Save to your computer, resize and print.

I picked these two tins.

The tops have a slide opening and shaker holes.

I didn't use any glue on tin,

but you can use hot glue if you wish.

Glued image to cardstock  (aka- used file folder)

Carefully cut out image.

Save the sentiments-

I used glue to attach a toothpick to the back,

then covered toothpick with a scrap of cardstock.

Used Distressing Ink  in Antique Linen on edges.

A little pinch of paper shred on top of tin-

The toothpick paper doll was able to stand

using one of the holes on top of the tin.

Went to my cigar box filled with single vintage earrings.

Every girl should have such a box :) 

You just never know when you need a little bling!

Here's another post about things to make with earrings.

Here and more here and here too!

Lil Miss Baker gets a pumpkin colored jewel!

I picked 'Topaz' for the turkey since it's Novembers' birthstone.

Happy Birthday to November babies like me!

Hiding on a kitchen shelf-

I hope you enjoyed these paper cut outs!

Thank you so much for visiting.

Happy Thanksgiving to you-

  3. These are cute! I have some oldish (25 years old) tins among my spice rack. I could trade them out for glass and create something cute. Just think how they would look on a Christmas tree!

    Thank you for sharing at the FWF link party
    Happy Thanksgiving!
