Introduction: Felt Lined Memory Tin

About: For the past few years I have been working on the Great Uncles Project. Three of my great uncles served in the Great War of 1914-1918. I've been studying their lives through their service records, the history…

My sister gave me a great tin of Scottish fudge for Christmas.

Thank you very much Rebecca. She knows I like little tins.

She said to keep my memories in the tin. A memory tin.

And that’s what I’ve done.

I keep my USB memory sticks and SD flash cards in this wonderful little tin.

It took about an hour to finish the fudge. Yum Yum Yum.

I decided to felt line the tin as a practice project for another job that I also want to felt line.

Step 1: Cut Felt to Size

A ruler and a good craft knife does the job.

Thank you Mr Stanley. I highly recommend this knife.

Step 2: Handy Thing to Have

Fiskars make this really cool tool to round the corners off paper.

It makes things look neater.

Works well on the felt too.

Step 3: Trim the Edges

I'll let you work out how to do this.

I used pre glued felt.

It was fiddly to work with once the backing was removed.

Step 4: Bonus Instructable

I keep my USB memory sticks together on a key ring.

I've added my address. I hope someone will return it if lost.
