Christmas Presents!

When I found this DIY I knew it would be perfect to do for my Christmas presents. I started searching for tins that would fit each of my friends individual style. It was actually pretty fun to make a mini theme for each friend and hunt down tins that went with it. Here are the three I have finished so far...still have a few more to go. For Jenn I picked a "World Traveller" theme, Jess got an "Elegant Vintage" theme, and Shawnee got a bit of a "Silly" theme because growing up we were so random together and I'm sure a mixed nuts joke is going to rear its head. I did kind of break the mold for her as I found a pashmina that I thought she would like in a really nice plum colour. Anyways, here are my creations... (inside all the tins are candles)

    Ps - I've been meaning to email you about exchanging Christmas cards (the post you wrote a few days ago). Is it too late to sign up?

  6. Such a great idea! I went to an estate sale many months ago and there were dozens upon dozens of vintage tins. I wanted to buy all of them, but had no real use, so I just bought one that I use for my spare buttons. I wish I had thought to do something like this though!
