(This is my first challenge entry)

Backstory:  I work on a toll road sticking my hand out all day for money.  Sometimes I get some really interesting coins.  I've been keeping the coins in old butter cookies tins.  I decided to decorate some of the tins with buttons.  I did three tins in total.  An American flag, Canadian flag and the Euro symbol.  I only entering the American flag on in this challenge.

Before:




Then I painted the out sides of the tins and lined them with felt.



And the finishe product





I had fun doing this.  Thanks for looking.

I agree.  You should have entered all three of them as one entry.  They look great.

Thanks for the comments.  The other 2 didn't come out as nice as the American flag.

OT - would one of our Canadian craftsters please PM reguarding Canadian money.  I'm looking for some display books for Canadian money and I can't seem to find what I'm looking for online.  I've got some for the US quarter program but I've got some great Canadian sets also.  Ex: http://www.alibris.com/booksearch?S=R&qisbn=9781402708695&qsort=p&siteID=_GMCFp7YVYc-YBnV2bJVz79GrOS2ZDAnYw

Thanks in advance.
