I made Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies ( from scratch!) for my mom's hospital nurses and my mom and her visitors. Knowing that I will probably never see the containers again, I decided to use the tea tins we have been accumulating for years. Not wanting to spend time or money decorating the tins, I did this:
As I have a stash of denim jeans in all sizes, I found a pair of girl's pants that had legs that were a perfect fit for these tea tins.
And I "pinked" off the ragged cuff and simply folded the edge, since that edge will be covered by a "handmade" top.
Here I used a vintage hand crocheted doily as a cover. The tin on the right has a quilt piece.
The tie is the seam of another pair of scrapped jeans. ( I save everything!)
Cheap, cheap, cheap, THRIFTY!
