I started with this:
I used an empty oatmeal tub for my base. I measured the height of th carton.
It measured 9 1/4" so I marked that on the back of my self adhesive 12x12" scrapbook paper I found at Hobby Lobby.
Then I cut off the excess. You will need two sheets to make it fit around the oatmeal carton. I took the backing off the scrapbook paper and applied it carefully and slowly to prevent bubbles.
This is pretty basic but has lots of potential. You could personalize it, decorate the top, use the carton to store bows inside- lots of possiblities. I still need to work on these headbands and make a sign to come out the top of the lid for my price.
Please don't forget to vote for your favorite recycled tin project over at fireflies and jellybeans for the iron crafter. I am #10 tin lid necklace.
