First, I took 6 tins that are all the same size. I got out my Crop-A-Dile tool. Punched holes where I wanted to attach the tins. Put a brad fastener in the hole and opened the back of the brad to attach it. Now I have a place to put all sorts of tools and supplies. Like pencils and pens, rulers, markers, scissors, seam ripper, etc. Whether you place sewing items in the tins or crafting items, they all stay together instead of having separate tins. You can even add a handle if you want to carry it.
|Here are some cocoa tins I had.|
|See where I attached the tins using a brad fastener.|
|My brad just happened to be in the shape of a heart.|
|Open up the back of the brad to keep the tins held together.|
|More heart brads in different colors here. Notice one of my tins is a different brand. You could paint your tins or decoupage them before you attach them with brad fasteners if you desire.|
|I store all my marking pens in these containers. I have washable markers, permanent markers and metallic markers in these tins.|
|Here are the lids. Now what did I do with the lids you might ask? I attached them the same way that I attached the tins.|
|I used round brads on the lids.|
|I placed small items in these tin lids. Small screwdrivers, sewing machine feet, etc. This sits in a drawer where I have other sewing machine tools and notions.|
Decorate your tins first if you want to with paint, decoupage, trims, buttons, glitter, etc.
