Okay! You have officially rescued my tired old tins from the trash heap. This idea is so sweet. And hand decorated tins have a coolness factor that no generic gift bag could offer. Love it!

I was a TJ"s last week and bought a tall square tin (with candy) because I liked the shape of the tin. Cynthia, what have you done to me?

where do you get a stamp like that?

Cora

How cool! Also a great idea for color-coordinated storage - reuse those tins instead of buying plastic boxes.

help! Every time I try painting tins, the lids end up peeling paint when I take them on and off. Suggestions please?

demaroge

Paint it with the lid intact?...tape around the top of the tin so it won't get painted?

The picture seems to show the blue rim on one (top left) as it was prior...

I want this color of paint!! I have another project and this is the color I have been searching for. Can you tell me where you found this color of paint?? I have tried 4 different places, to no avail!

This is such a great idea to use on my daughters tins that she doesn't want. What a super way to recycle. Thanks for sharing. Deborah

Janice

What a cool idea. I like this re-used made BETTER idea :)

I am going to do this one...some of my tins are nasty inside, so I think adding some newspaper print or pretty wrapping paper mod podged decoupage to it will fix it fine!

Laura

quick Question, I have done this before the the cookies smelled like spray paint due to the paint on the side of the can. Any suggestions on how to keep the smell of the paint off the goodies?

Thanks for this wonderful idea. I covered a tin I got for Christmas (benne wafers - thanks, Nancy). Added a photo from a 80th birthday invitation, some lace and a button. Plan on filling it with another pinterest goodies (pretzels, rolos & pecans). Have a picture posted on facebook.
