"My family love all those delicious Scandinavian cookies you get in tins at Christmas from stores like IKEA. Instead of throwing out the old tins when finished with I upcycled them with some old road maps. To add to the sophisticated look of these repurposed tins I also added some stylish leather handles from leather scraps. These stylish but handy storage tins will now look great in any home, especially those with a travel theme. I also put in cardboard inserts in the tin to make organization easier."
