Piece of my Heart Photo Tin Instructions
Designed by Cheri Carlson

Whether your loved one is overseas in the service or just traveling for business, this is the perfect way to send them out with a piece of home in their pocket! This thoughtful tin carries photos on accordion-folded paper and still has room for a favorite treasure to be tucked inside!

Step one: Cut a piece of paper to fit the top of the tin. Attach it to the tin with terrifically tacky tape. Attach the army medallion, or any other meaningful embellishments to the top.

Step two: Cut a strip of paper 11 3/4 x 3 1/2 inches. Accordion-fold the paper every 2 1/4 inches. To get the rounded corners, place the tin on top of the folded paper and draw the outline of the tin. Trim the corners. Attach photos to folded paper with Terrifically Tacky Tape. Attach folded paper with photos to the bottom of the tin with Terrifically Tacky Tape. Punch a hole in the paper and attach a piece of red ultra micro-fiber suede to use as a pull. Attach charms and pendants to the suede.
