Handmade HOLIDAY Gifts! Beaded Tins or Box

Rhinestone Makeup or Jewelry Box

Turn an empty mint tin into a high-glamor purse compact for makeup essentials or as a small jewelry box. This fun craft uses rhinestones to cover the top of the tin. Add a mirror on the inside of the tin for beauty on the go.

Sand paint off tin with a fine sandpaper; sand in one direction. Clean tin with soap and water; wipe dry.

Use a toothpick to bab on permanent glue (e-6000 is great) & tweezers to add on the rhinestones. Avoid covering hinges.

Avoid gluing and glittering sides, as this will prevent lid from closing. Use paintbrush to apply thin coat of glue to entire inside bottom of tin. Hold tin over plate; sprinkle glitter to coat all sides. To remove excess glitter, turn tin over and tap. Repeat with inside of tin top. Use paintbrush to apply laminating liquid to glittered surfaces.
