Personalized Magnets and Tins
Martha Stewart Living, Volume 150 May 2006
Brighten your desktop by slipping a picture of a familiar face into the lid of a round tin. Here, a black-and-white photograph was added to a small metal tin with a glass lid (available at crafts stores in assorted sizes). It can hold pins, paper clips, and the like. Or fill it with pebbles, and use it as a paperweight. Round tins can also function as magnets.
To make the tins, print black-and-white photos onto ink-jet paper. Center lid on photo, and trace with pencil. Using scissors, cut along the inside of the traced line. Place photo in lid, and tape it to the lid's inner rim. To magnetize, glue a magnet to the bottom of an empty container, and stick to a metal surface
