Altered Starbuck's Can

I have held on to this can since last Christmas after receiving a basket of specialty coffee's from my Son and his wife.
I loved the style of the can and just knew sooner or later I would find a use for it.
And what better to store in it then my favorite little treat...Chocolate!

I like to have a little stash in my craft room for when the mood strikes.
With my August Scrapbook Kit from Scrappy Giraffe Kits...there were some lovely patterned paper from Crate Paper that reminded me of Chocolate so I knew now was the time to make a nice home for my special treat.

The hardware on the tin was very easy to take apart and assemble back together again.
Covered the tin with primer and used some paint that also came in my August kit.
Used ModgePodge to adhere and cover Patterned Paper.

Made some flowers... labeled my can....BadaBing...Badaboom...nice little container to blend in with my other altered Projects that work for me as storage.
Only problem that I see is that... most likely should have not labeled my tin...now everyone knows what product I keep in here!
So much for my hidden stash!

OoOo Jean I LOVE these!! What a super idea! I've had some things (like stackable boxes) that I've been hanging onto just knowing they had to have another purpose once all the candy was gone, now you've given me some great ideas!
