Vintage Biscuit Tin for Paper Crafting Storage

Vintage Biscuit Tin for Paper Crafting Storage

I discovered that a vintage biscuit tin has the perfect dimensions to hold 12" x 12" bulky paper crafting supplies. It looks good and keeps everything neat.

And the only thing she loves more than arts and crafts is arts and crafts storage - apparently they are a project in itself or something of the sort and she can spend hours just doing up boxes or little display items to display and use around the house. Me? I'd just probablycontinue poutting cookies and biscuits inside the tins - all the better to transport those lovely home-baked goodies that she makes too in any case ;) Posted: 12:12 am on October 13th

Usually it is their designs or patterns that often attract people. I have a few vintage biscuit tins as well around the house but they are much smaller. Thus, I have used them for the storage of little things like buttons, keys, and any other bits and pieces lying around the house. They make great décor too if arranged skilfully.

I love your concept.

I pinned this to my repurpose & organization boards. Posted: 8:32 am on January 26th
