How neat! What an awesome tin! WHat kind of glue do you use to keep the paper on the outside of the tin so nicely?

First, I went nuts sanding the outside of the tin... I think it has some sort of plasticky coating that makes it hard to glue onto, so it's best to rough it up a litte. Then I used matte mod podge applied to the tin, not the paper. It sticks pretty darn well, I changed my mind on the paper before the green, and I had to remove the first choice with a flat razor blade because it wouldn't just peel off Smiley But honestly I think the key is sanding it first.

Oh so cool, and didn't even realize it was "open" and 3D until the last photo, which elevated the cool factor to the 10th power!  And the lamp socket base -- brilliant!
