DIY Apple Tins for Back-To-School
Do you ever just make a project and when you're finish it looks exactly how you pictured it in your head? It definitely doesn't happen with every project, but it did with this one and I'm thrilled with how adorable these apple tins are!
From empty cookie tins to the cutest supply tins ever!
Here's how to make them:
- Empty Pirouline Tins
- Craft Foam Sheets (5.5"x8.5") You'll need 2 sheets of the main color for 1 tin. (I used the self adhesive foam, but it only sort of stuck, so I also used some Xtreme Adhesive by Tombow to stick the foam to the tin)
- Pipe Cleaner
- Hot Glue
- Tombow Extreme Adhesive
1. Adhere 1 sheet of red (or green!) craft foam around a small Pirouline tin. For the skinny Pirouline tins, a 5.5"x8x5" foam sheet fits perfectly!
As I mentioned above, I used a Tombow Xtreme Adhesive Runner to stick the foam to the tin.
2. Use a marker to trace your lid onto a second piece of craft foam. Cut it out and stick it on top.
3. Cut a 1/2" strip of foam and wrap it/adhere it around the side of the lid.
Apples are usually red, yellow, or green, but feel free to go crazy and make a purple apple if you want! They're your tins!
4. Cut out 2 leaf shapes from green foam and cut a 1.5" piece of pipe cleaner.
5. Use hot glue to adhere the leaf shapes on either side of the pipe cleaner.
6. Use a bit of hot glue to adhere the leaf and stem to the top of your lid.
These would obviously be fabulous gifts for Teachers, don't you think?
