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 love 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.

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

Want to learn to crochet or knit?  I have a ton of extra crochet hooks & circular knitting needles.  Will throw in some pattern books and yarn for anyone interested in a swap.

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
