Craft Storage From Altered Tins

I love a good upcycling project, and these upcycled Altoids tins are no exception.

I have some lovely sets of Melody Ross debossing tools, but while the alphabets and numbers came in beautiful tins, some of the smaller sets came in blister packs.

I needed a way to organize and store my extra debossing sets.

I looked around my life, and realized I had several empty Altoids tins in the junk drawer. They were the perfect size to store a small set of dies.

After washing the tins, I added decorative duct tape to the bottom inside of the tins.

Next, I cut down the foam blocks the dies came in, and placed then snugly inside the tins.

At first I placed the packaging chart (that showed the contents of the set) on the inside lid, but I ended up moving the chart to the outside bottom of the tin, so I would know what was in it.

I store these tins in a basket with all the rest of my debossing tools.

The tins make me happy every time I see them.

To see how I decorated the outsides of the tins, see this tutorial.
