Some see it as JUNK.....I see it as a TREASURE!

I am often accused of being a pack rat. I save things that I know I can use later......I almost always find a use!!! Well......I have a few of these tins. I get them at the local Asian market. I really buy these things because I like the container....but these cookies were pretty good too!
So here's what I did! I covered the tin with some paper from my stash. I think this one was from Glitter Stacks. I used my Big Bite Crop-a-Dile to punch holes in the lid. I punched more holes after I took the picture. I used my Marvy Scallop Oval punch and my SU Word Window punch to cover it up since it was pretty rough. I typed the words using my computer. The flower is decorated with my SU Scallop circle punch and a silk flower. I used some of the same paper and made the flowers center with a SU Build-A-Brad. Now I need donations!!!!!!
