A JustRite Pincushion and Caddy

Hi there!!  Today marks another fabulous JustRite Stampers Blog Hop.  Today we are sharing gift ideas using JustRite.  I have an altered item to share with you today and something that will hopefully come in handy for the crafter.  Using JustRite Tiny Words Borders and Centers I created a set of pincushions using canning jars and with JustRite Preserves Borders and Centers I put together a tote to cover and carry them.
Here is the whole set stored and ready to put away. :-)

Here are the pincushions themselves, they contain buttons and perle cotton plus pins.  They were made using little canning jars I purchased at the Container Store.

Here are the  pincushions in their tote around caddy.  When finished the lid can just be put over them and back on the shelf they go.

Are you surprised to see a recipe box?  The recipe box makes the caddy.  This one was purchased for $1.00 at Michaels.  I turned it over, covered it with paper then added the handle :-)

    Those pincushions are soooo cute. And talk about clever. How in the world did you see a tote out of a recipe box???? Can I come over and nose around your brain for a while? ;-)

    Happy Wednesday,

    Oh Becca, this is gorgeous – I’ve always thought you were the queen of crafts and now I believe your the queen of altered craft too!! You do make some fantastic presents out of items found in the sale bin – I wish I could think ‘outside the box’ like you do. tfs
