Try It Tuesday~lets get crafty!!!!!


Hi everyone~get some pattern paper, tin box, Helmar 450, magnets and an X-Acto knife and your ready to go.  Fun little project that will make a great gift!!!


I used the X-Acto knife to trim the paper to fit the inside of the tin box and glued it down with Helmar 450 Quick Dry.  I used the 450 to glue the magnets on the back of the vintage milk caps**sigh*** love those!!!



This is what the inside looks like . I made a little note pad also by covering a coaster and then clipped  it together.


The front of the tin can also hold notes ~when you "V" the tin it stands to make a display piece.


I added felt pieces to the back and the front side, so the tin will not leave scratches on  your counter cabinet.  Have fun with this one~so many different things you could add to the inside of the tin.  If you havn't taken my poll ~would love for you to. It is here.  Thanks for stopping by!!!! See ya soon~
