Default Adhering paper to altered tins??

So here's the scenario: Friday at 4 am I need to give away some altered DVD tins- with pads, pens, etc inside to keep track of all of the shopping we will do over the next few hours. Tonight is Tuesday night, and I am exhausted. Wednesday is food shop and meet DD at movies with all 5 grandchildren. Then, home to nap for the 12 hour night shift before Thanksgiving Day (no, I don't have to cook, just shop!). Lets see- that leaves a few hours after dinner before I collapse into bed to get up at 3 am to meet the crew at 4 am.

Am I in trouble?? I need help! I can see lots of tins in the gallery, but the first 5 I went to had no instructions!

I need to know how to adhere the paper to the tin, whether or not to seal the paper, and how to make little folders and attach them inside the lid- to hold receipts, etc.

Anybody done this before and have any info or helpful hints? Know of a blog where directions are given?? All of the pens I have here at the house are too fat for the DVD tins I bought- what do people use? My tins don't have hinges, how should I help keep them closed?

HELP!!

I'd use terrific tape/tacky tape (not sure the exact brand name), but it comes in red rolls from SU...you can also get it at M's. HTH!!

When I'm in a hurry, as it seems you might be, I usually turn to my Xyron machine. If I feel like it is something that needs to be sealed, I will use Mod Podge over the top of that (since the Xyron will put a consistent adhesive on the back, it shouldn't bubble when you put on Mod Podge). HTH!

Yikes, isn't there anybody out there reading who has done this???

Well, still waiting for an answer, but making library pockets for the insides- they will hold money and 'lists', luckily the tin is the right side for an A-2 envelope, I will put that on the other side. and, the gods are smiling on me, I found a library pocket to take apart and use as a pattern.

Will also need to stamp something for the outside, which is why I am wondering about the mod-podge. That would seem to work if the paper was one layer, but all of the tins I see have multiple layers- podge-ing that can't work, can it??

I do have tacky tape, and double sided scotch, as well as other heavy duty sticky on a gigundo roll- I'd just love to hear from a person who has done it, or has carried one around to see how it holds up!

Mod Podge is what I alway use. I haven't done the size you are referring to but my neighbor and I have done dozens of the lunch tins and flat tins and paint cans and always use mod podge. I have also found that if it gets a little bumpy when you put the top coat on, it usually smooths itself out when it dries completely (like a few hours later.) It also helps to let it dry completely before you put the top layer on. Good luck!

I'm in the process right now adhereing DSP to DVD tins - started out with Scotch Tacky Adhesive - but I'm doing 25 of them - so I switched to SU's Glue Stick and it's working like a charm. Paper is stuck nicely.

I did my first altered tin a few weeks ago. I used mod podge to adhere the paper. Use a minimal amount; not so much that the paper gets soaked but here is a tutorial that should help:

I just use sticky tape for adherring paper to the tin. I use crystal effects or other super-sticky glue to adhere ribbon and buttons and such then to the paper. I've not had a problem with the paper becoming wripped so i'd never thought about sealing the paper. I wonder if like a clear spray sealant would work better than modge podge.

For the inside, I found colored chipboard cut into rectangles that fit perfectly inside the box as dividers. I used the SU! tab punch to make tabs and adhered those to the dividers using sticky tape.

Good luck!

FYI ., . .. The Card Ladies have a cool template that works great for cutting around the lock and also for cutting paper that fits perfectly on the lid of these tins.

Check it out!

I used Mono Multi glue when I made tins.
I wish you luck!
