Back to school craft - doll pencil box!

Hi! Today I have an easy craft. We're going to make doll pencil boxes! It turns out super cute when you're done! Let's get started!

You will need:
* Spray paint in the colors of your choice
* Mint tins

Before you begin to paint your tins, you must know this: Spray paint is messy. Wear an old shirt or something to protect your clothes, and you will mess up your nail polish (if you are wearing any) so gloves might be a good idea. I wear one of my dad's painting shirts when I am dealing with spray paint.

Lay your tins open on cardboard or newspaper outside. Spray them.

Let it dry in between coats. Do not spray too much at once or it will take a long time to dry.

When you've painted it all you need to, let it dry for at least ten minutes.

You're done! Fill them with Pip Squeaks (or any other kind of mini markers) and tiny pencils!

I hope you enjoyed! Thanks for reading!
