Fun with Divine Twine and Washi Tape

February 23rd, 2010 § 16

A couple of weeks ago my sister-in-law helped me clean out my kitchen cabinets. I saved an old spice tin because I loved the size.

spice-tin-makeover-suppliesI gathered my supplies: tin, Japanese washi tape (have I mentioned I love this stuff?), some Divine Twine (I love this stuff too) and a portion of a full sheet label.

  1. I love it! And wow, you have a lot of tape!! I wish my collection was that large :)

  2. Whitney says:

    Oh Jamie, this is just some of my collection (yikes!!). I’m too embarrassed to show it all. I think I have a addiction problem with it!

  3. I love how this turned out! Great simple tutorial, too.

    Who knew I could like a pencil can so much?

    Thanks for your hysterical story earlier this week.

  7. Becky B says:

    I just realized you were repurposing an anise seed tin… are you an avid pizzelle maker? =)

  8. Whitney says:

    Becky~
    I’m not a pizzelle maker. I actually don’t know what a pizzelle! I’m not even sure how I got the anise seeds in my cupboard in the first place. The really scary thing is, the sell-by date on the bottom of the container is June of 1982!! Tells you how much I bake/cook.

  9. Becky B says:

    Pizzelles are the waffle cookies that my slovak grandmother always makes. They are usually flavored with vanilla and anise extract but in the old days anise seeds were used. =) I’m not sure what else anise seeds could be put in so that is really odd you had mystery seeds in your cupboard. But I don’t really bake either so I’m likely to find random things like that too! lol

  10. Whitney says:

    Ooohh, pizzelles sound yummy!

  11. Becky B says:

    Very! They are a great cookie for eating with coffee or tea. This Xmas when I make another 14 dozen, I’ll have to send you some. =)

    Sa-weeeet! Thanks. :)
