Been wondering what to do with those leftover Altoid tins? How about making a cute case for your earbuds, so that they don’t get tangled up in your bag or backpack? This craft takes only a couple of materials, and you can make one in just a few minutes’ time.
What you need:
Felt with adhesive backing
Trace the shape of the box on the back of the felt (on the paper backing). Cut out one piece for the top and one piece for the bottom of the tin. Pull off the paper and apply the pieces to the top and bottom of the tin.
Use a glue gun to glue down your embellishments. I used felt flowers. Appliques of any kind would also look nice. You can also glue a thin ribbon around the edge of the lid if you want to dress it up a little more, while also covering up the red of the Altoid tin.
If you’re making these as a little gift or party favor, you can use a label and write/print names on them for the inside of the lid. The ones I used are from Paper Source, and they just happened to fit perfectly.
If you want to make some for party favors, you can always buy little white or silver tins that haven’t been printed – available from party favor/wedding favor websites.
I’m going to be revealing a new look to Charlotte’s Fancy this week (this is one of the projects I mentioned on Friday). I hope you like it!
