Upcycled Coffee Tin!

Red, White and Blue challenge at The CSI Project!

If the art of "upcycling" is the process of converting waste materials into items of better quality and higher value, then guess what... I've done just that!  YAY ME!!!  I've had this idea forever, and this morning, thanks to "The CSI Project" it all came together!  This week's theme is "Red, White and Blue"!  PERFECT!  
I love coffee!  I love the taste, I love the aroma and I love the pick-me-up!!!  I even fancy the containers my favorite coffees come in!  The tins, the glass bottles, the paper cups with  their funky sleeves...  I love them all!!!  They're cool and pretty and fun!  Sooo... today I'm upcycling a coffee tin and submitting my design to "The CSI Project"!  Once trash bound, this Vanilla Nut CafĂ© Tin now serves as a creative and unique vessel for a small flower arrangement!  SWEET!!!  A perfectly upcycled patriotic centerpiece!  VoilĂ !

Very cute. The label adds a special touch. And the arrangement fits perfectly!

Very cute idea!

This is a case where leaving the tin as-is was the perfect thing to do.

I adore your patriotic spirit. It is red, white and bluetiful!

I hope you'll stop by for my bbq on an Anthropologie inspired white tablecloth. :)
