Recycling Your Prima Flowers Tin Idea


We all have these beautiful tins left over from our Prima Flowers, but what do we do with them? With Valentines quickly approaching, I wanted to make a Valentines Candy Tin.

I found it fitting to use many of the Prima products to embellish the Candy Tin. Parlor Petals - Dusty Rose, Flower Ribbon - Gold and Mauve, Say it in Pearls - Blue & Brown, and Stripes Paper by Fancy Pants.


I will have a complete tutorial in McMahon Five Design Newsletter on Monday. You can sign up here if you don't already receive it!
Have a wonderful day!

WoW!! Have I really missed all these wonderful creations of yours AND this great altered tin with tutorial to come? I love to recycle things like this too. I made a shaker tin out of these flower containers before. They have alot of great uses. You have been really busy. Thanks for sharing all your talents with us!
