OK, OK, what am I going on about. Losing weight? That's got nothing to do with crafting. Well, here's how you do it......
Take one biscuit tin left over from Christmas and empty out the biscuits. At this point either scoff all the biscuits in one sitting and then you don't need to worry about THOSE biscuits anymore OR make some Rocky Road out of all your old chocs and biscuits from Christmas. Or make a Key Lime Cheesecake with said biscuits and share with friends and family (this is the weight loss bit).
Next, clean out the biscuit tin of all the crumbs (oh look it's me with my little red camera).
After that, cover the outside of the bottom half of the tin in your favourite paper (Cosmo Cricket).
Then cover the top, again with your favourite papers (Studio Calico) and decorate.
Fill with sewing supplies (notice my little red polka dot needle book that I made. It's not going to win any prizes but it's still cute).
And voila! Not only have you made something pretty and functional out of your tin but you didn't gain weight from eating all those biscuits........or did you scoff the lot?
