Come on in...I am so happy you have joined me today! I've been a little creative and thought I would share it with you. 

James always bring me these yummy cookies that I love with my special blend of coffee. Because they are a bit too sweet I can only eat two at a time, so they last a while.

Finishing this small tin, I had an idea to make it into something useful. There were a number of ideas...but I settled with it becoming a Treasure Tin. Painting the tin was the first step, drying took a while because of the weather.

Gathering all supplies and setting up a station, I was able to finish the tin quickly. I used craft glue to put the ribbon around the rim of the lid, then added a heart bead. 

I almost forgot, I had to buy the shells, I purchased them from Dollar Tree. I had all the other things I needed in my craft supplies.

It took a short time to arrange the shell and place the beads.
I was able to get a nice arrangement and used the hot glue gun to seal them there.  

The inside of the tin was painted too. I added some batting to give it height, a cutting of pink satin fabric and netting. 
Then, placed a few favorite pieces inside. 

I love the results. Although I have a jewelry box, I thought this would look nice in my room, or even the Bunny Room

Either room, this piece is sure to be a nice accessory. I think I failed to mention it, but I've named this tin, "TREASURES"

Thanks so much for coming by to visit...and to see my little Treasure Tin. Hope you enjoyed my little tutorial.
