Tiny Treasure Tins





I made these over the past couple of days. I found the cutest little mini Altoid tins at the grocery store yesterday! I decided after making the regular sized tin, to make a miniature treasure tin for myself..of course, had to stitch a bunny on it :)
You can put anything you like in these tins..buttons, treasures, needles.
I put a magnet inside the lid to hold needles, pins. I put sticky back felt on the bottom to give it a nice look.
If you need a tutorial on how to make these adorable tins..you can check this site out..although I did it a bit differently (I used a hot glue gun!) I have no patience (LOL)...
This is a GREAT tutorial and a wonderful blog I have found on the web:
TheTwistedStitcher

I am on a roll..and I think I want to make more of these. They stitch up quickly, and are so much fun, and make wonderful gifts!

Raggedystitches,
