I made this a whyle back, but thought I would start posting  finally, now that I have been around awhyle. LOL Anyway after cleaning the tin out I punched it with my trusty Cropodile on the top sides of the tin. The Cropodile punches threw tin like butta! I eat it. I added eyelets to cover the holes, also set with the Cropodile. That was a theatrical feat in itself as the eyelets kept taking off. I wish I had an extra hand to hold it all in place.  Tongue Let me know what you think.

That rocks! What are you going to keep in it-if you can keep anything in it? And where did you get the Jones Soda candy? I've never seen it anywhere.

Me + Craftster = eat. Wink

That's great!  Do you wear it as a decorative piece of jewelry or do you carry things in it?  I think it'd be a perfect place for guitar picks...or little colored pencils...

Oh, and did you actually like that candy?  I had the green apple ones once and they were way too sour  Sad

I always save my little mint & gu containers and use them to put sewing needles, and beads in.  This however is an new take on re-using them.   Grin

One does not simply walk into Mordor. Its black gates are guarded by more than just orcs. There is evil there that does not sleep. The great eye is ever watchful. It is a barren wasteland, riddled with fire, ash, and dust. The very air you breathe is a poisonous fume.......

I haven't actually used it yet but it was intended to keep a few dollar bills in for when you go to festivals , or maybe a pill box or cool pebles or shells found when taking a walk. I don't remember where I got the candies, but if I remember I liked them but not enough to run out and buy more. LOL
