What You Make of It: Dime Store Chic Goes Green With Tin Can Kitchen/Studio Organizers

Spring is just around the corner and for some it means spring cleaning! Elizabeth Holcombe has a clever idea to green up your organizers!

Can storage
When I travel I like to go to grocery stores for local souvenirs! I scan the canned goods shelves for cans with labels that look like the graphics haven't been changed since the forties or fifties. I bring home a few cans, open them with one of those can openers that remove the lids without a jagged edge, and enjoy the contents. Then I have a wonderful can with a cool graphic label to use for storage in my kitchen or studio. Cans make lots of great storage from holding pens, glasses, to chopsticks and so much MORE! So, the next time you are traveling from home, check out the canned goods aisle and you may bring home a tasty and useful souvenir!

Inspired by vintage dime store treasures, vintage fabric, and a no-fear attitude toward color, Beth crafts totes, pin cushions, wreaths, and corsages into her Dime Store Chic creations.
