It's always fun to surprise your back-to-schooler with a special treat, tucked into their backpack. My nephew loves to color, so I made him this fun little Crayon tin using an up-cycled Maya Road Tin and my favorite Xyron adhesives.
So this is what the tin started off like - but of course, you could use any similar container that you had.
I traced around the base of the tin - to make a liner. After this was cut, it went easily through my Xyron 5" Creative Station. For something like this, that will get a lot of use and abuse, you want to use an adhesive that will keep the whole sheet down, and not peel up. So Xyron does the trick.
I did the same thing for the lid (but had to trace around the acetate window). To finish the box off, I used May Arts Ribbon. My favorite way to glue my ribbons is with the Xyron 1.5" Sticker Maker. I ran the length of ribbon I needed through the machine, peeled off the backing and added it to the box. I used the new High Tack Adhesive Dots to apply my ribbon.

While I am compensated by these companies in some form, I maintain the freedom as an independent designer to say what I truly think of their products. I will never recommend something that I don't personally use and enjoy."
