Day 25 of Make Madness – Recycled Mint Tins
For this tutorial I decided to paint my Altoid tins black mostly because I didn’t have any white flat paint. I grabbed a few rolls of washi tape and taped away.
As I was working on my tins, I thought about a few other ideas for decorating these boxes involving scrapbook paper, my doodle art, photographs and alcohol inks. I have 6 more tins left, so I’m going to give those other ideas a try in the next few days.
I haven’t filled these guys yet because I still need to add a coat of Mod Podge to seal the tape, but I’m definitely going to build myself a sewing kit, a hexie kit, knitting stitch markers holder and a watercolor kit. And I’m going to heed Mindy’s suggestion and use one for dog treats. The tins are a perfect size for my pocket when I’m walking the dogs. Now I won’t have to contend with treat crumbs in my pockets.
Awesome mom! I can’t wait for our next walk!
These are super cute!
How cute! I love the black one with writing… I am really into this chalkboard paint phase lately and I think this will be on my project list! Thanks for sharing!
Thanks. I hadn’t thought about chalk board paint. That’s a fantastic idea.
What a great idea, and I like the using them for doggie treats while you out walking the dog.. Thank you for sharing :}
