Default Altered Tin Help Please!

I am about to make altered tin recipe boxes "the ones with the handle that opens from the top" and wondered the best way to adhere the paper to the tin box. Also, I have seen where ribbon is wrapped around the side of the top and wondered how to adhere that too. Thanks so much!

I used Mod Podge matte to adhere my paper and when that was dry, I did a topcoat in Mod Podge also. The adhere my ribbon I used Aleene's Tacky Glue (the regular kind). You can see my tins in my gallery.

I use Mod Podge too... to glue it down, then to give it a top coat to keep it protected. I use the matte finish so it's not shiny. I usually use red tacky tape to adhere my ribbons around the box because it will be handled frequently and I don't want the ribbons to slip or come off.

I imagine this question has been addressed, as I am probably the last one in the world to try an altered tin but, can't find the answer. What about the seams on the side. Do you try to cover them? Can't find any clear pictures. I used the excellent picture tutorial on SCS and had no problems but am not pleased with the two seams.

Mod Podge works great and so does Terrifically Tacky Tape.

I have run mine through the Zyron machine and there's no mess!!!! As far as the seams go, when I'm putting the paper on I wrap the back of the tin first so that the seams are facing you and then i wrap the front of the tin so the seams are facing away from you. This way the seams aren't so noticable when your looking at the tin. If you really need to you could put a strip of ribbon up the sides to cover the seam and run it over the lid too.
Hope this helps, have fun.

I brush mod podge on the tin, apply the paper, then when dry apply another coat to the top of the paper to protect it. I run the ribbon through the xyron and then stick it on.

I have the seams on the sides. apply the back first, then apply the front

I use spray adhesive. There's no mess and it doesn't pop off when dry like the modge podge does. I also don't seal mine with anything bc I don't care for the Modge Podge on top look...just a personal pref.

Another thing that works well is a good glue stick over all and a small line of Scotch Quick Dry Glue Just around the edge. I find it holds better than the MP and waaaaay less messy.

For the ribbon, you can use red line or even the Scotch Quick Dry (available everywhere, even at Target).

For raised images such as letters or embellishments, I used Dimensionals or foam tape.

Here's how my latest came out:

I have used this method on my last tin and found it easier for me than the Modge Podge. No bubbles! I was wondering if I could put a layer of Modge Podge onto
the paper that was Xyron-ed on though. I like the look of the paper when it is coated and it seems like the paper would have a bit of protection.

Hmmm, I don't see why not, I would make a thin layer as to not mess up the glue underneath. But then who knows, it may not effect it at all, sorry haven't tried that one yet.

I use Tombow Mono Multi glue or the Tombow metal glue - it is quick, reliable, inexpensive and I know what it is capable of doing or in some cases, not doing (i.e. not repositionable - not a big deal but sometimes things just don't go where you want them to!)....
