I love re-purposing things. I started (probably out of necessity) as a little girl & it still gives me warm fuzzies to this day.
Have you seen these organizers from Land of Nod? I've always thought they were really cute & they were the inspiration for this DIY project.
I'm a newly converted tea drinker & went through this tea tin quickly this winter. I loved the shape of it though & decided to hold onto it just in case I could use it for something later. I'm glad I did, because it ended up transforming into a perfect storage tin for my craft space!
To begin with, I used a flat spray paint/primer-in-one to cover the tin & paint it white. Valspar is my favorite brand, but Krylon works really well too.
I loved the scale of these alphabet stickers from a previous Studio Calico kit & applied them directly to the tin.
Once my letters were in place, I applied a couple additional coats of paints & voila!
The tin is the perfect size for holding 3x4" Project Life® cards... but of course, could be used to hold any of your things. (Hence the name.)
I have a new obsession with spray paint. It's seriously the Duct Tape for crafters!
