Pretty Tea tins & recycling

I have always been attracted to the packaging of stuff. Give me any tea in a beautiful coloured tin, and I would be happy! Mind you, I would not drink bad tea, but i would cherish the tea tin! likewise with decorative shoe boxes, giftboxes, any kind of container where colours and shapes have been worked with…

Here is a series of stunning TEA packaging…

kusmi tea, my favourite
mariage freres, a subtle and elegant packaging
traditional Twinings; lovely & comforting

and here is what you can do with empty tins;

lovely flower pots
fridge magnet, who would have thought!
for paraphernalia; coins, buttons, hair pins, make-up, rings...
lovely herbal garden
prettiest combination! {image from bijoukaleidiscope.blogspot.com}

What do you usually do with boxes, tins and so on?? Love to hear your ideas…
