I'd like to line the inside of one my stashed altoid tins with craft felt. What's the best way to do this? And what type of glue should I use?

I did a search but I didn't find any info on the lining. Hope this hasn't been posted somewhere! Thanks for any help! Smiley

Use spray adhesive.  It's the best way I've found to line things like that.

Thanks! Should I make a template for the cutting? Or just glue it in first and trim it?

I used double stick tape when I lined mine (with felt) for an mp3 player case. I've been using it almost daily for 6 months and there is no sign of it coming unstuck

I would use a template.

I would use a template.

Do you know where I can get one? Or where I can learn how to make one? I can totally do the inside of the lid and the bottom, but I don't know how to figure out the size of the inside bottom edge (the lip?).  Undecided  I'd want it to be a solid strip of fabric/felt.

fit a flexible tape measure around the inside, or around the outside then subtract a half a millimeter because the outside would be a smidge bigger.  then once you get it glued in there, you can cut it down to fit.

by the way, that's a cute idea.  i'd like to do it with velvet/velveteen though.  what are you going to do to the outside?

Thanks! It would've taken me ages to think of that, mishti! Smiley  I'm not sure about the outside yet. I was thinking of spray painting it or decoupage, but maybe both! Grin

And the lining idea isn't mine. I saw some altered/re-purposed tins on craftster that were lined and wanted to try it. Wink
