Thrifting Thursday 3-20-14 Repurposed Tin Redux

Welcome Friends~
I Just cannot say enough good things about working with repurposed tins [RPT] . 
What's not to love?? Inexpensive, colorful, pliable yet sturdy, not ending up in a land fill~ 
really just a great resource.

Here are a few things that have come off the work bench lately and feature RPT and colored patinas and inks.

This set of cobalt owl was a custom order from this past weekend's craft show. The client wanted a whole set as a gift for her friend. IMHO think they turned out great :-D

THANKS for your time today~ Have a great weekend. 
And when you're out garage sale-ing, or thrifting, or cleaning out your shed, don't throw away those old cookie tins.... Create something cool!! 
Warm Regards,


  1. Well done! Do you cut the metal with shears, file the edges?

  2. Te ha quedado hermoso el conjunto, sin duda un gran regalo.
