Teeny tiny container

Decorated a metal sucrets cough drops box with washi tapes, to hold calligraphy pen nibs, found stamps for mail art, moo cards, eraser, etc.

Please find a tiny metal tin of candies, cough drops, mints, then grab your washi tapes and make one for your art-on-the-road box.

Pop over to Hanna's blog and wish her a happy birthday, and you just might win Daisy Yellow Zine Issue #4!

I love decorating mint tins. I have one in the car for spare change and emergency money. It always makes me smile. I keep trying to convince myself I don't need washi tape, but... resistance is futile.

{Tammy}: Lizzie, Of course you don't "need" washi tape, but I do really find it useful for so many things. I like to buy materials that have multiple uses and I think that washi tapes do indeed.

I used washi-style tape to decorate Altoid tins to house a set of gem stone magnets that I sold at my craft show recently--fun ideas for lots of other uses!

Ok, love the washi tape tin, but what really gets me are your photos...
Your skill at framing and arranging an item, a piece of art, a random thing you noticed.
You make each photo delicious.
Ok...I can admit it...I am jealous of your boogie.

Such a brilliant idea Tammy! thanks so much for sharing xx

I love the way you ramp up the colour on the photos to make them really zing! Thanks for the idea of the tins... sooo cute and do-able!

I have stacks of little tins and stacks of washi tape - why oh why have I never thought of putting them together? I have a little altoids tin that I spray painted and never got around to decorating. It's holding a bunch of sewing needles. going to grab my washi tape RIGHT NOW. thanks for sharing!
