Save all your used Altoids Container in the hope that you something with them? You’ll love this Altoid tin crafts!!!
If you’ve ever read my blog, you know that I appreciate teeny-tiny food. I can't get enough of it, if it bites just to sweet, small desserts and mouth.
But I ALSO love tiny and sweet-and-storage solutions. And if I can, re-use and recycle, something for storage, that is even better! In this post you will learn how to decorate Altoid tins!
I have been throwing recently, decoupage and Mod hodgepodge Dimensional Magic (TM) can be used to decorate a little mint cans, I don't want to. Now I want to teach you how to decoupage a tiny tin.
Have you DM ever? It is a very thick decoupage medium that dries with a resin finish. I love that you can embed fun decorations in it, too! It is just another way to personalize your box even more.
What you can store in these cuties? Just about everything!!!
I use one to hold tiny craft supplies (such as the caps for the blade on my crafty cutting machine). I keep my extra camera SD card in another in my camera bag. The third held my ear buds for my iPod for a while. But it can also work for storing jewelry when you travel, too!
Want a fun little storage tin? Just follow these steps!
Altoid Tin crafts
step 1: Gather your supplies.
round corner die cutter
scissors or paper cutter
embellishments (buttons, paper, ribbon, beads, puffy stickers, etc.)
Mod smorgasbord of Satin
Mod hodgepodge Dimensional Magic
step 2: Attach panel at the bottom. To fit cut out two sheets of coordinating scrapbook paper snugly on the top and bottom of the box. You can use a rounded corner punch to give the paper a more finished look, if you want to.
For the bottom, brush a layer of decoupage on the jar, press and smooth one of the pieces of paper on the top. When dry, brush another layer of decoupage over the paper to seal it. Allow to dry completely.
step 3: Cut the panel at the top. Use the other piece of paper and a brush to paste more Mod smorgasbord on the top of the lid paper to the bottom. Allow to dry to.
step 4: glue down the decorations. You can add something decorative and cute on top of that, panel, embed under the DM. I've used ribbon, buttons, beads, brads, puffy stickers, etc.
These objects can 'float' in the DM, if you back them up. So, just use a little bit of Mod-hodgepodge and glue the decorations down and allow to dry to.
step 5: Carefully-Dimensional Magic. Then, very carefully, pipe-DM at the edges of the top paper". Fill the remaining area with DM. Work slowly, because the medium a little.
Take your time also helps you avoid the formation of air bubbles in the glue. The DM allow to dry thoroughly overnight. Enjoy your lovely new tin and . . .
step 6: Repeat the process with the other cute little containers! Please don't tell me I'm the only one that loves wee little (and fun!) storage solutions. So, do not throw these tiny containers you may have around the house. Decorate and use them!
