Upcycled Crafts: Altoid Tin Refrigerator Magnets

March 15, 2014 at 4:13 am Leave a comment

We were very happy to be a part of DIY: Make it Awesome held at the Manchaca Branch library today. I had the honor of helping to staff the refrigerator magnet table, where crafters could create their own magnets. You too can make your own magnet! All you need is a mint or candy tin, scraps of colorful paper, and some objects tiny enough to fit inside for a cute tableau.

All the magnets that were made were works of art in and of themselves. Here’s a sampling of the creativity:
