Repurposing


Well, here's the fate of my Flower Fairies canister:



A little bit of scrapbook paper and a ribbon have transformed it into a useful storage container. The only difficulty now is that I have to figure out what to store in it! Any ideas?

  1. Do you knit or crochet? Would needles or hooks fit?

  2. It looks so beautiful! Oh~ you could store so many things! Buttons, coloured pencils, q-tips for the bathroom - cotton balls, or I'd love to use it for my nature collection and put feathers I collect in it. The possibilities are endless! Let us know what you decide. :) Have a beautiful day!

  5. I like to take old jewelry that have unique beads or pieces and tear them apart to use in other projects. I would probably use a container like that to store the jewelry in. But I am curious, why did you cover up the beautiful flower fairies?

  6. Not that what you've done with the canister isn't pretty, but your mom bought it for you because you liked the flower fairies. You've covered the fairies!

  7. Knitting needles are a good idea! So many options... I decided to cover the canister because it would be difficult to mask the "cookie" advertisements. But there's just a tiny bit of glue stick, so I can always remove the paper later!

    Thanks for the ideas!

    Yours in Christ,
