Happy Wednesday!!!
I am sharing with you and easy upcycle project using instant coffee tins. 
So get that hot water going and get to drinking so you can have an empty tin to work with, giggling.

Cover tin with adhesive pieces. 
Die cut labels and doilies with pattern paper using the two “A” plates, “B” plate, metal shim and platform along with the Craftwell Cut N Boss.

Add large label and honeycomb die cuts  to front of prepared tin. 
Add smaller label to front with pop dots. 
Add fussy cut image to front.  
Add washi tape around lid edge.

Adhere pattern paper to top of lid along with die cut pieces.  
Adhere knob to top of tin.
