I have a confession to make. I HATE wrapping presents for Christmas. However, I love the look of a perfectly wrapped gift. I am guessing the it presses my perfection buttons too much. I don’t like it when the corners are not crisp. I haven’t mastered that technique yet. Until I find a way to minimize or eliminate this frustration. These tins are the perfectly wrapped gift.
How I created the perfectly wrapped gift

Tins come in all shapes and sizes. Every thrift store has them most of the year. That is exactly where I got all of these tins.
My taste is pretty simplistic. So I really didn’t like the cutesy teddy bears and penguins on the tins. I decided to spray paint them(did you know I love to spray paint things?)
I choose these colors because most of my Christmas decorations are silver and white and I thought these pretty teal and greens would look good together.
Once I had them painted, I decided they need just a little embellishment. Again, I found this lace at a thrift store. Yards of it for about 10 cents a bag. I glued the lace to the tins and there you have it the perfectly wrapped gift. And one that is reusable year after year.
One dilemma I had was nosy present peepers, whether child or adult. ( I have a couple in my family.) My solution is to group the present together and stack them and then tie them together with a pretty ribbon.
They can be used for pretty baked goods also.
Do you hate wrapping gifts as much as I do? Do you have other unique ways of wrapping gifts?
Thanks for stopping by.
These tins are perfect to use in gift baskets also. Come see.
