Mint tins make a great carrying case for jewelry, travel essentials, and more. For this fresh, upcycled idea, I put the magnetic attracting qualities of the tin into play. Then, I upcycled old magazine pages and flexible magnets to create one game of word play and another game of tin-tac-toe.
If you’d like a set of minty fresh magnets for your tic-tac-toe board, you can even use two colors of mints, coat them with a two-part resin and use a dab of super glue to attach curiously strong magnets to the back.
Don’t forget this post from last year that shows how mint tins make great storage cases for other magnetic mementos like these bottle cap magnets. You can check out even more mint tin and other upcycling ideas in my book, ReMake It!
