What a fun book with brilliant ideas.
Who knew the humble tin could be turned
into so many different functional and
beautiful things.


I have already started collecting my fancy
biscuit tins to turn into a sewing tower.
It's just such fun and looks good as well.
Your own sewing supplies cake :-).


Jemima has packed the book with 16 different
projects to make.
The thing I love is once you have learnt her
techniques you can use them to create
even more projects.

The book is broken down into 4 sections;
Storage
Lighting
Decorations
Gifts

Each section has a number of different
designs and techniques
that create some amazing projects.


I love the labelled storage tins,
I bet you could guess as they are crocheted.
My next favorite is the magnetic pinboard.
This is just such a fun practical idea.
I am going to make one for my son
as he always need space to store things
and it looks so good.


At the start of the book you have
clear large pictures of the projects
so you can get a good look at them
before deciding which one you 
want to make.


At the start of each of the tutorials on how
to make the projects, there is the supplies list
including any tools you will need
to make them.
Then you are given step by step instructions
that include easy to follow pictures.
The pictures are very clear and show all
the places you may need some guidance.


There are a number of techniques
that are used in multiple projects.
For this reason there is a 
section at the back of the book.
In this section it teaches you how to use
the tools to create everything.
There are loads more pictures and really
easy to follow instructions.


There are a lot of different tools
that are used in the book so you may
need to purchase some to complete your projects.


There really is so much packed in this book.
A lot of fun, interesting and beautiful projects.
What a brilliant way to use the humble tin.
