Business Card Case in 1 2 3

I was in need of a little container for my business cards, and I started searching around my stuff to see if I had something that I could re-use or renovate for my purpose, when I found a nice old tin box that I believe used to carry mints.  Now it looks like this:


The size of the tin is perfect for my business cards and I renovated it simply in a quick 1 2 3 steps.


After choosing the decorative paper I would use for the lid of the box & printing it out, the easy steps were:

Step 1
Draw the shape of the lid into the paper.


Step 2
Cut the paper


Step 3
Glue to the surface with Mod Podge


I selected images from the “Lost & Found” collage of salvage stickers from Tim Holtz idea-ology that I like very much, and it turned out very nice, I love it.
