Project - Altered Dollar Store game tin with marble magnets
posted 05/20/04 at 09:35 PM
I realize this has no stamping on it, but I posted a couple weeks ago on the Stamping board about finding these great tins at the Dollar Tree. I made this as part of my SIL's birthday gift. It was easy and I like how it turned out. I didn't even have to paint the tin; the bottom is solid black and the top has dark blue sides with no writing. I just covered up the top with washi paper I've been hoarding for quite some time now, added the fan, coin, and the mizuhiki knot. The paper with the characters was actually packaged with the paper, I just tore the edges and sponged with brown ink. Attached everything with glue dots. The magnets are just your standard marble magnets–adhere paper to cardstock, trace marbles, cut out and adhere paper to marbles with E6000, then glue magnets also with E6000. Easy and fun. These tins are great for marble magnets because they are deeper than the AOL tins.
