Glad you like it. I used the tin lid to draw a template and then cut it slightly smaller than the lid so the pages would fit. Then I laid the template on a long sheet of watercolor paper and drew around it, moving the template along and repeated drawing around it so that what I had in the end was something that looked like those paper doll chains. Then I cut around the whole shape leaving the inside line uncut so they would stay attached. I scored the uncut lines so folding would be easier and started playing! Hope that helps.
