It all began with a pile of ALTOIDS tins and an October Stampin' Up! Designer Series Paper Sale. Joe loves peppermint ALTOIDS. He keeps a ready stash in his car at all times, so I found myself with bunches of these cute tins. It's so, so easy to decorate and gift these tins for countless occasions with designer paper, plus Stampin' Up! is offering 15% a select group of designer papers for October. Are you ready to see these thrifty recycled gifts?
With my Trimming the Town Designer paper I was able to make a Welcome Tin. I'm imagining using this tin to welcome someone to the neighborhood, to my team, to my family, or to my church. With Christmas just around the corner, I naturally needed to make a Christmas Tin of gift-giving. Did you know that Gift Card quite easily fit in ALTOID tins? Speaking of the inside, don't neglect to decorate the insides of your tins too! My last tin in this set was repurposed to make a Congratulations gift tin. I am imagining it as a Congratulations on your new home or graduation or any other accomplishment that deserves celebrating.
It was quite simple to make Gift Tins for Baby, Birthday, and "Whale Done" Occasions with the Whale of a Time Designer Paper and the Whale Done stamp set.
For my third trio of Gift Tins, I simply repurposed my tins with Forever Greenery Designer Paper, a quick tag, and some bows. The tin in the upper left would make a beautiful Congrats on your Retirement Gift. Even the bow was fashioned from designer paper! For the Wedding Tin, I simply covered my tin with Forever Greenery Paper and dressed it with ribbon. For the tag, I stamped my good wishes then curled my paper with my bone folder. My Birthday Tin was wrapped with a belly band made of designer paper.
