Prima pixie tins on the fridge...

I love all the scrapbook companies encouraging their customers to think green and recycle their packaging....the card that I posted a few days ago featured the clear packaging from a package from a double pack of toner cartridges for my printer...

Today I am showing you these cute magnets I made from the Prima Pixie tins. As soon as I got these tins last year I knew I had to make them into magnets but hadn't taken the time to work on the project...well last night I pulled them out and got busy. I used alcohol ink to stain the tins first; then added stickles to two of them and dew drops to the third. I then added a photo behind the plastic center on each one. I love how they turned out...they are so sparkly with the stickles and look GREAT on my fridge!!








So before you throw out that packaging....repurpose it!!!

And...if you are in the market for some Primas...be sure to check out Paper Patch Crafts...Anne has a wonderful selection!!! http://www.paperpatchcrafts.com/
