It seems to be all about paint this week! Here are three DIY projects I pinned that each use paint to create gift containers.

* Spray-painted cookie tins: turn those tacky tins into stylish ones with a bit of paint. By Cynthia Shaffer. I'd be inclined to leave the tins just a plain colour, without adding the extra decorations. Maybe just tie ribbon around them.

* DIY glitter gift bag. This time paint dresses up a plain muslin bag. By Jenny of Hank + Hunt on The Sweetest Occasion blog. Also includes instructions on how to switch out the bag tie if you don't like the colour the bag comes with.

* Cigar boxes as gift boxes. By the bbbcraft sisters on Design*Sponge. Here they dressed them up in red paint for Valentine's, but even plain, I think cigar boxes make a nice gift container.
