Szeged Tins Repurposed

Add a nice touch to your refrigerator or filing cabinet with these Hungarian-themed pencil holders!

Here is a very simple project we recently completed. If you have an old magnet on your refrigerator that you can use for this, that’s even better! There are many different Szeged brand products and their tins work great for this since they are square. Here is what you need:

* an empty Szeged tin (paprika, hot paprika, any of the rub tins, or the cinnamon and cinnamon sugar tins. Or make a collection! These are fun to give as gifts!
* a magnet
* glue (Elmer’s, Tacky Glue, Modge Podge, etc)

We used a business card size magnet, Modge Podge, and a clean, empty tin. Glue the magnet on the back and let dry and you are done!

Happy crafting!
