Tin Can Lid Upcycling






So simple and chic - these biodegradable plastic 'tin can lids' by Northumbria University graduate Jack Bresnahan. Even saves you a trip to the recycling bin by encouraging some ready-made upcycling for your design studio or home. Household tin never looked more upscale and streamline.

Brilliant. I love the look of ridged tin cans and think these are great. I keep the peel off platic lids from coffee and stock and those sorts of things and attach them to tins as storage. The Gold Label plastic coffee lids fit most larger dog food cans. Can't put food in them, but pencils, string, odd things.
