How to Create a DIY Mini Sewing Kit from Mint Tin

Hello blog friends! It’s Judy here today to share a Mini Sewing Kit created from a mint tin. The last time I traveled I discovered my plastic sewing kit was broken. I decorated this tin and transferred all the supplies into it!

How to Create a DIY Mini Sewing Kit from a Mint Tin

Here are my supplies!

To decorate this tin, wrap  washi tape around the bottom of tin.  Then wrap TWO layers washi tape around edge of lid.

Fasten a piece of patterned paper to top of the tin with Extreme Double-Sided Tape ½ʺ . Add a strip of washi tape to thin cardboard and trimmed it same width as tape.  Fasten to tin with Extreme Double-Sided Tape ½ʺ. Next thread twine  through the top straight edges of the Lace Ribbons. With another piece of twine, tie a bow and secure with a dot of Art Medium to the knot. This will keep the bow from coming undone.

The Lace Ribbons were fastened to top of tin with Extreme Double-Sided Tape ¼ʺ. Then add a piece of patterned paper to the bottom of the tin with Extreme Double-Sided Tape ½ʺ. For the inside, add washi tape around the sides of bottom. Patterned paper was added on the inside lid and bottom.

To finish it off, I transferred all the supplies from my broken kit and I have a pretty (and sturdy) Mini Sewing Kit!
