You could glue felt for a liner as well.

Great Tutorial.

hey is very nice and simple, i quite like it!

yesterday @ school i found two rectangle shaped boxes for Amaretto(unluckily without the drink  Undecided ), but with beautiful images, i think one of them, at least will turn into a bag like yours Smiley

Thanks for the tips and the tut

You could also try decoupaging different images onto the tin if you can't find a suitably cute tin.  Paint the tin for background and decoupage away!

I loved this idea so much I had to make it right away! I had a tin from those rolled wafer cookies with cholocate inside. Great tin and the cookies were already gone (of course). I modified the design a little. I sprayed the outside of the tin with a clear sealer, to protect the paint. For lining, I used sticky-back felt, which I already had. I had to lay the main lining in vertical strips, because the big piece kept sticking to itself. But the strips worked really well. I cut circles for the insides of the lid and bottom. I inserted a strip of plain felt about 1"x4" under the sticky felt on the inside side and inside of the lid so it forms a hinge for the lid, but doesn't interfere with closing the tin. That way I don't have to hold the lid when I open the purse. Then, since I really wanted to complete the project, I just tied a long piece of ribbon to the mirror hangers for the strap. It looks so cute and I love it and the only expenses were the mirror hangers and screws! Thank you so much for this great idea!

I was going to post about the sticky felt and about using a piece of lining or leather to attach the lid from the inside, but I see people already did.  Another couple ideas I had were a) you could attach/sew pockets to the lining for pens and stuff, and b) it would be cute to glue a mirror on the inside of the lid.

Nice job!

That is so cute! This tut was awesome. I have a bunch of old square Toll House cookie tins that are just the perfect size for this. Plus, after looking at these pictures this morning, I tore apart the basement sorting through about eight gigantic boxes of material. I unearthed enough to make several bags on their own, let alone the lining for the tins. All I need is a nice long strap and I have everything! It's so awesome that you inspired me into action!

Oh how I love to blow bubbles down mainstreet!
