My sister's Christmas present

I can't believe I forgot to post this!! Here's what I made for my sister for Christmas. She loved it!!!! It's a tin box (dish detergent tablets came in it originally :lol:) that I covered with Mod Podge and paper.

What a great idea! I have 2 of these tins sitting around collecting dust, and now I have something to do with them!

Very cute. It'd be perfect for a recipe box!

Very, Very cool. I should make some of those for my dd to giver her friends. You know what it's like to find something cool for a teenage girl, they either already have it or it is to $$$$. But that is cool and soooo personal.

thanks girls!!! my sister planned to keep it on her dresser for "stuff" that she accumulates. Lol

it really IS a great gift, I need to remember that when other special occassions come up and I"m unprepared for a gift.

I did Meghan's in one afternoon. I prefer to use more than one coat of Mod Podge but didn't have the time that day. I sprayed an acrylic spray on it to waterproof and protect it.

VERY NICE GWEN!!! And it does make a wonderful gift. I think I may need to try something like this as a Valentine's gift for Loli's teacher.

THANKS FOR THE INSPIRATION!

best,
