Silly Bandz Purse

My granddaughter love Silly Bandz, but has no where to keep them, so I recycled an old Maya Road tin and made it a silly bandz purse for Hailey.

Today I would like to show you how I made this.
Your supply list:
Some kind of box or tin
Paper I used Echo Park papers
Mod Podge
Stickers - or whatever else you want to use to embellish the box with

First I painted it, I figured if the paint would help the paper adhere to the tin better, and also there were areas not going to be covered by paper or ribbon, but this is an optional step.

Then I applied my papers, and put a layer of Modpodge over the entire box.
After that dries, add embellishments, ribbons, and alphabets.

Off to make another one, my granddaughter is 4 and my son is 11, and after he saw this, he wanted one for his Silly Bandz!
