Such A Cutie!

Hi everyone, 

If you are a follower of my blog you will know I am obsessed with ribbons and flowers! Now to add to that collection is my new fad - STRAWS! I saw a card with a paper straw used as an embellishment and though it looked great so a bought a few,,,,then a few more....and then a few more.... well you know how it goes!

 So I needed somewhere to store them. My son was bought a tin of toffees for Christmas and asked me if I wanted to use the tin....well of course! 

So we have gone from this... 

This tin is quite big its about 5 and half inch tall and about 5 inch in diameter. 

to THIS.......

Now I am on the hunt for more similar sized tins (I am thinking baby milk tins) to decorate to store all my flowers in!

  6. Oh my word! What a superb creation Stacey, I am amazed at all the embellishments and would never have thought of using straws!!!! Mind you I only ever see plain white ones in my supermarket! I think the best idea is the little 'diamonds' in the tops of the straws - brilliant idea! Thank you for entering the Crafty Calendar Challenge this month, lots of luck!
