Default Help with the Altoid Tin

Ok, I have been searching for over a hour for directions to cover an Altoid tin.I admit it, I am not computer smart. I have went to techniques for a super search, and I only found four questions (people also wanting directions). Help my neck is stiff and I have blood shot eyes from the computer. I just want a simple one, I even did a (sorry) google search but, they used clay. I don't want anything that hard. Does anyone have a template or directions?
Thanks in advance,
Cindy

I have done a few, but I don't have a template. Sometimes I spray paint the outside, sometimes use as is. I usually use sticky strip to adhere ribbon around the bottom edge to cover up the printing there. For the top I just measure and cut a piece of CS and use a corner rounder. Stamp your design on the CS and adhere with sticky strip. I like to cut out a piece of O' So Sticky Tape (sheet) same size and cover the CS and then cover with microbeads.

Here's an example

You're welcome Cindy. They are really easy - you'll love doing them.

BTW - you can make a sig line that automatically shows up at the end of every post so your name (and any other info you may want like a gallery link) is always there. Just go to User CP at the left side of the dark blue bar above.
