DIY project: Pretty Christmas gift boxes
Managing editor and resident crafter Catherine Therrien transforms the tacky eyesore that is the Christmas cookie tin into a charming vessel for today's gifter. Snow White spray paint is the perfect backdrop for graphic washi tape embellishments.
- Metal cookie tins
- White spray paint
- Washi tape in various colours and patterns
1 Make sure the tins are clean and free of rust. Spray-paint them according to the paint manufacturer's instructions. Let dry completely.
2 Adorn the lids or the sides of the tins with graphic holiday motifs using various combinations of washi tape.
3 Embellish your designs with stickers and ribbon.
