Turn baby formula tins into craft tins.


  • several baby formula tin
  • 1 patterned duct tape


  1. Wash and dry empty baby formula tin.
  2. Measure around the tin with string, and then cut duct tape to length.
  3. Start at the bottom of the tin and wrap duct tape around carefully and repeat until tin is covered.

Notes... There are plenty of patterned tapes out there. I chose the duct tape varieties as it was wider and easier to work with. Tins are the perfect size for pencil, textas and just about anything else.
