It is that one day of the year that we try to share a project that reuse or recycles something meant for something else. Of course, we really like creating new purposes for old items year round. Many of you have seen us do many things with old Altoid Tins but we wanted to share this tin that will be made in a future class at Remember This, here locally.
This album starts with an empty Altoid tin.
You can paint or cover the lid with card stock or patterned paper. From there, the ideas a limitless. Below is a look at the lid recreated.
Just so you know that we really like all the old vintage things as well as repurposing items, notice the small box/tray that the album is sitting in. Tim made this using an old vintage yard stick.
Lots of sponging, embellishments and vintage-looking paper used to create this one-of-a-kind keepsake album. As we have mentioned, if you are local, call Remember This to save a spot in this class on May 25th. Not only will you put together the album but you will learn how to use ice resin....very popular right now.
As we mentioned, we have made many albums with the Altoid Tins. Here is the link for our tutorial page if you are interested in purchasing the Altoid Tin tutorial. Please keep in mind, this was the first tutorial we ever did as well as one of our most popular but it is not the directions for the project above. Have a great Earth Day and take time to reuse something for a new purpose!
