Tin Can For Cards

I am all about using what items I have on hand around the house. I dont live anywhere near a Michaels or large craft store. I wanted a pretty can to put my cards in so I found an old Christmas cookie can. I painted it and added some ribbons, flowers and letters. Now I have a nice place to store my cards! =)
Painting tin or metal can be tricky. You will need to sand and prime the can so the paint will stay on the tin or metal. I found primer at at walmart for 97 cents and a sand block for $1.67. Pretty cheap I thought! I'm going to make another one soon. So keep your eyes on the look out!

I used felt to go around the bottom of the tin.
