Got Altoids? Don’t throw away that tin! Recycle it or better yet, UP-cycle it! For this project, you will need:
-gift tissue paper
Turn your Altoids tin upside down and use it to trace an outline on the tissue paper. Cut the tissue paper accordingly.
Apply a thin layer of modpodge to the top of the Altoids tin and carefully apply the tissue paper. Be slow and careful so that you don’t make bubbles. Then, add another layer of modpdoge to the top of the tissue paper that has been adhered to the lid. Let dry.
Apply a sticker of your choice to the top of the dried modpodged tissue paper. You might have to apply a little of the modpodge to the back of the sticker so that it adheres. Then, apply another layer of modpodge on top of that.
Let dry and voila! A pretty tin to give as a gift or use as a storage box for yourself.
A fun and easy upcycle craft!
