Recycled Cologne Tin

Good evening everyone. I am glad that you stopped by tonight. Here is a cute project that I made for my daughter to put some of her hair clips in. (Although I am thinking I might want to keep it for myself now) I painted this old tin that had some of my husband's cologne in it. Once all the paint was dry I got out my hot glue gun because I was originally going to hot glue these brads on after I cut the backs of them off. Then the light bulb went off and I said "Hey I wonder if I could use my Crop A Dile and punch some holes in this and then put the brads through it.  

I was really worried about how it would work but it worked perfectly. I think my daughter is going to love it. I love all the bright colors and later on down the road if she wants to change the brads we can always do that.

I am entering this cute tin in the challenge over at My Creative Time
