Watercolor Paint Tin

My latest craft project. I’ve talked about my Sister in-law before, how she paints with watercolors. She is getting ready for back to school. I decided to make her a little something she could fit in any purse and Paint whenever the mood struck.

MOD PODGE to the rescue

Finished Product

Love Altoids Tins! This was pretty quick and easy.

First I had Daddy T-REX Print these tin inserts. I have no idea where he found these. I am sure a google search and they could easily be found.

Then I spray painted the Tin with white primer. Printed the cute paper covers and cut them out.  Like any crafty Momma I went for MOD PODGE. I painted MOD PODGE on the tins and paper, making sure there were no air bubbles. Let those dry then added a spray clear coat. Filled the 3D printed inserts with paint I had on hand and let them Dry.

She was very happy with the final product. Now I am working on a small notebook to go with it.
