I saw these little storage tins in a "Cloth-Paper-Scissors Studios" magazine. I really liked them and thought they'd be just right for my new studio. I'm using them to store my colored pencils. They really brighten up my desk.
I made a wrap of fabric (layered and quilted) to fit a clean tin can. I punched holes for the ribbon.
I also covered my desk chair with the same fabric. I sure like it better than the ugly gray it used to be.
