    Inspired by the season and always trying to come up with a little go-to project for my youngest daughter who's 4, I came up with My Skeleton Tin!

    It's a magnetic puzzle, really, where you need to "build" your skeleton! I like to think of them as bare-naked paper (magnetic) dolls!

    and the inside....

    here's a photo of the supplies i used:

    As for the Digital products, i used Jacque Larsen's My Skeleton and Pixel Works, Eerie-sistable Papers and Elements

    I actually ended up using a blank altoid tin instead of the one pictured because i found it after i took the photo! haha!

    I placed my digi products on a 8 1/2 x 11 document, created the tin cover, and printed. i then cut everything out and adhered the bones to my sticky-back business card magnets and then cut those out. I then adhered the cover with sticky tape and made an inside bottom/top piece just out of regular cardstock. Adhered both of those and placed a full skeleton on the inside top as a reference to constructing the skeleton. I then place all the magnetic bones in the container, sticky taped ribbon around the outside perimeter and glued a button to the top just for fun....

    Pretty easy, and i just used what i had. I thought it would be so cute in a little mint tin, but you could make it large and just put it on the fridge!

    If you give it a try, i'd LOVE to see it! POST HERE!

    ya, the magnet sheets are kinda everywhere...craft supplies store, walmart, office supplies. I like the HEAVY/THICKER ones. Some are just too cheapy and don't work really well. This last set of business card ones i got at an office supply (office depot maybe?) were awesome. and again, i prefer the sticky back ones.

    If you have to buy them, go for the ones you can just print on...i found them at Michaels- saves a step! i just used what i had today....
