When recipients are expecting cardboard boxes and paper bags, there’s something special about gorgeous reusable packaging. Nothing’s more nostalgic than receiving a tasty homemade treat in a vintage tin. Scotland-made tartanware containers have become collectible, and when used in holiday gift-giving, the wrapping becomes part of the gift. If a tartanware tin is nowhere to be found, any vintage container can be used in its place and repurposed over and over.
Choose a color of tissue paper that complements the design of your vintage tin. Red and green are standard go-to colors and pair nicely with tartanware, but incorporating a complementary hue into your color palette can add an unexpected pop when the tin is opened.
