Make Madness 2018 – Day 3 | Notions Tin

I don’t know about you, but every time I need scissors or needles for my knitting projects, I can’t seem to find them.

My sister-in-law bought me some Altoid-sized tins so that I could cover them with fabric and/or paper and use them for very basic notions tins.

I used the top of a memo sheet that I found at the dollar store, traced around the tin, cut out the image and then glued it with Mod Podge.  I covered it with a couple layers of Mod Podge to secure the edges and give it a nice finish.

Inside the lid of the tin, I attached flat magnetic sheets for my needles.


All in all, this project took about 10 minutes (including glue drying time).  I love having a few of these notions tins ready for use in my projects and REALLY love knowing that the basic tools I need for my projects will always be with the project.


Here’s a video to show you the end result.

Until tomorrow,





We were wondering if these tins might contain treats?  And if so, could we have some?
