I saw this project over at the blog Charlotte's Fancy and immediately thought it would be an easy, fun way to create some storage for hearing accessories. It worked out really well! It would definitely be a fun project for kids too.
The project uses only the following:
- An empty, clean Altoids tin
- Felt with adhesive backing
- A pencil
- Any adhesive decorations you like
Just trace out the shape of the Altoids tin on the back of the felt, cut it out, and apply. Then apply your decorations!
I decided I mainly want to use it for my battery storage. The packaging for my batteries usually end up all over the place in my purse, and I really needed an easier way to keep track of them.
That's 4 packs of batteries and they fit perfectly in the Altoids tin. I think it will work out perfectly. I'm thinking of adding another piece of felt to cover the "Altoids" imprint in the top.
I also tried out my hearing aids themselves to see how well they fit. I added another piece of felt to the bottom of the case so they wouldn't slide around on the tin.
It worked out great! I can easily use this to store my aids, for example, when I'm camping. It's not waterproof but I might use this to hold my aids at the pool too. As well as for storing multiple other non-hearing-aid related items.
Hope you enjoyed!
