Straight Pin Storage Jar

Make a decorative magnetic straight pin holder made from an empty recycled container. Mine is made from an empty plastic facial cleanser pad jar. Simply glue magnet strips or a recycled advertisement magnet cut to fit into the top of the jar lid. Cover the jar labeling with contact paper or scrapbook paper or wrapping paper etc.


A small bit of printed measuring tape doubled on top, wide enough to make a small heart. I used mostly tape to secure the edges which is strong enough to suit my own needs.
