Tic Tac Toe from Rescued Treasures

I just finished a tin of curiously strong mints. (You know, Altoids.) If I can't throw away a cardboard oatmeal container, you know I am not throwing away a metal tin.  I decided to see what I could make using only things I had at home.

I used some reclaimed magnet sheets*, some fun foam and cardstock, paint and paint markers.
*Check here to see how much  I love them!

I got the big pot of paint on sale at Michaels for about a dollar and the markers (terra cotta) came from a Michaels grabbag.




We gave the top and bottom of the tin a coat of white paint. When it was thoroughly dry, I decorated it.

The game pieces were from the foam and cardstock, cut after being glued to magnet sheets.

Voila!

Yes! Yes! Never throw those mint tins out. I find all sorts of ways that they become useful.
