$$Frugal Friday Tip$$

Mr. Slicey Tin by Rachel
Rachel's Frugal Friday tip: alter or repurpose something un-scrapbook related.

Rachel's Frugal Friday tip also meets the January Christmas Gift Challenge.

She found this tin for a dollar at Walmart during the Christmas Clearance sale. It came with cookies in it, but they were horrid so they went into the trash! Another frugal tip were the flowers. Prima flowers are usually two layers thick, so she seperated the layers to make two flowers! Twice the bang for the buck! Have fun on your retreat!She loves these types of tins for either storage or for gifts during the year.

She decorated this one in an evening with her New Slice cartridge, Fonts: Essentials which she got for Christmas this year. She has been cutting up a storm!

Your mission is to repurpose something with scrapping supplies - or scrap with something you received for Christmas. See the details below in January Christmas Gift Challenge. Send your projects to scrappinpsycho@live.com . Can't wait to see your project.


  1. This looks great! I love the colors you chose. I reused a tin that I got some Stampin Up Punches in. I love altering especially things that can be recycled.

  2. Too funny about dumping out the yucky cookies! :) LOL I love how this tin turned out and I love how you added the scalloped edges and the title on top. Great job of using your slice and re-using a Christmas tin!

  3. I am a BIG fan of re-using things such as packaging. Like the colors you chose. They go well with the silver tin. And that font is very cute.
