Pom Pom Up-cycle – Trash to Treasure

Hello Everyone!

It has been a while! I apologize for the disappearing act! Last year I  went back to school and it overran my life!  Due to some family emergencies, I have decided to take this semester off so I can help out as much as possible.

I also decided, it was time to stop neglecting my poor little blog and start adding tutorials again.

So without further ado… A Trash to Treasure Tutorial!

Have you ever looked at all those boxes and tins that come with products and think “I cant throw that in the trash!?” Well I do, in fact I have a huge collection and a mission to do something with them.

In this tutorial I used an old metal band aid box to make an adorable little pom pom box. You can do this with anything. In fact, I am making another one out of a Tin that Tea came in.

Remember when Band-Aid boxes were made of tin!?

I know all the collectors out there are shuddering right now, but I have more than one.
