Stripped Tin Boxes

So this is a project that my cool older sister Gabby taught me when I was a teenager. Go to the thrift store and buy all the cookie tins that are old and kind of funny looking (Christmas Cookie Tins) but have a cute shape. Then you strip all the paint (see Martha for directions). In the end you have cute silver tins to keep things in. I remember going to my sister’s house and she would have the cutest collections of odd shaped tins.
