Transform a Cookie Tin into a Beautiful Flower Design
I love making fresh baked cookies and giving them as gifts. One of my favorite ways to package tasty treats is in a beautifully decorated cookie tin. I transformed a plain white, metal cookie tin into a whimsical, Spring and Summer design that anyone would love to receive even without the cookies. I accented the tin with pretty paper and ribbon to and attached fabric flowers to the top of the lid to make them look as if they were growing in a garden.
- Round metal tin
- Small paper plate
- Four seasonal flowers with stems
- Floral scrapbooking paper
- Textured coordinating scrapbooking paper
- Floral ribbon
- 5/8” wide satin ribbon
- Glue stick
- Craft Glue
Step 1: Cut V shapes in even intervals around the paper plate. Round the edges to create petals so it looks like a flower.
Step 2: Cut the floral scrapbooking paper into a circle shape the size to fit inside the flower plate and attach with a glue stick.
Step 3: Cut a piece of the textured scrapbooking paper the size to fit the top of the lid and attach craft glue. Glue the floral ribbon around the base of the tin, overlapping the ends.
Step 4: Glue the flower plate to the top of the lid with craft glue. Let dry. Glue the satin ribbon around the sides of the lid, overlapping the ends.
Step 5: Remove two of the flowers from the stems and leave two flowers on their stem. Cut the stems different lengths — one 2-1/2” and the other 3-1/2”. Bend the ends of each of two flower stems at an angle about 1” from the end. This will give the flowers a more 3 dimensional look.
Step 6: Apply craft glue to bottom of the bent ends of the stem. Attach the bent stem ends to the lid and secure with strips tape. Glue the remaining two flowers around the flower stems to fill in the holes.
