I posted this in the Bag-A-Month Craftalong thread--see that for details--but I thought I would post it here, too.  I spent about $2.50 for the sticky-back felt lining and the brass loops for the strap.   The can, strap and Mod Podge I already had, and the photos are from Opera News magazine.

Opera News = my favorite magazine. Great use of it on the purse.

I have a tin I would love to repurpose into a purse, it's an awesome old cracker tin Smiley I was wondering how you attached the loops on the side to clip the purse strap to??

As I recall, they were just loops I got at the hardware store that had a screw and nut attached.  I drilled holes in the side of the can, fastened the loops with the screw and nut, and sawed the excess length off with a hacksaw, then covered the screw up with the felt lining.
