First off you will need the bottoms from both of the tins.
I used a fine tip black Sharpie to mark the holes on the tin by using the hinge as a pattern. Next I used the bottle cap hole punch to punch holes in the tin.
I made sure the hinge worked and brads would fit through the holes of the tin.
I gessoed both tins, let dry and then painted with Folk Art Tapioca acrylic paint and once that dried I used Vintage Photo Distress Crackle Paint over the top of that.
Next I cut two 7 inch pieces of Natural Twine and adhered middle way on each side of the tin.
Next I cut a small piece of Forest Tree Specialty paper and a strip of Mens Plaid/Compass Cardstock which I folded to give it a pleated look. Also both of these paper/cardstock are double side which means you get more bang for your buck. 🙂
I adhered the circle over the back of the watch and once dry I adhered the whole thing to the top of the tin.

I cut two pieces of Mens Plaid/Compass Cardstock to fit the inside of the tin which I inked and the adhered to the inside. I didn’t like the way it looked and I decided to add Natural Twine around the edges. To finish it off and cover the ends of the twine I punched out more leaves from the Wrap Glitter Cardstock and adhered to the corners and then topped off with an acorn button and a mini pine cone that I had received from a swap.
This could either be used as a tiny trinket holder or you could add some mini photos inside.
Since I have two lids leftover from these snus tins I wonder what I create with them??? Be sure to check back in the future and see what I create with these. 😉
