repurposing a vintage recipe tin

I love it when I can find a new use for a vintage items. I adore vintage recipe tins and always have random things stuffed in them. I have no idea why it took me so long to notice it is almost the exact same size as a box of tea! I wanted a cute way to package up some tea for a gift so I tried this out on a whim and it is perfect. I now have a legit reason to hoard recipe tins. I love giving tea as an add to to presents and will most likely have to package them up like this for the rest of my life...
Anybody else found a great new use for a vintage item?


  1. I love that you do this! the nail polish idea was also genius too!


  2. Awesome idea! I just love it when one can find alternative uses for vintage items as well. There are a lot of devoted tea drinkers in my family, so I'll definitely be passing this one along. Thank you very much for sharing it!
