Step 1: Download the PDF

Download and print the inspirational lines.

Cut out each line.

Fold and make the fold in thirds.

Place each piece of paper into the tin.

Print out and cut the instructions and the back of the tin "Humanity spends a lifetime trying to find a voice - trying to be heard."

Step 2: Tape the Top and the Bottom on the Tin

Line up the paper instructions and the bottom paper and tape the labels on the tin.

I used packing tape to mount the paper and then another layer of clear packing tape, like a plastic cover, to make it stronger when it is in my pocket.
