This week for Trash to Treasure Thursday I am showing how to get a bunch of inexpensive baking pans for the dolls in your dollhouse.
This is another old trick but it is really cool and not everyone knows about it. If you look closely at a lot of the containers of make-up like eye shadow and some lip gloss you will find that it is packaged in mini baking pans. Not all brands have the little metal inserts and I have even found that sometimes some brands will and sometimes they don't. Lots of times you can see the edge of the metal piece if you look around the edges of the make-up.
The first step is to get the make-up out of the pan, how to do this will depend on what it is. For a powder eyeshadow I usually dig it out with a pointed tool (my dental pick this time) and it will all come out pretty easily. If the make-up has a more creamy consistency you might need to use a craft stick and some paper towels.
One the little tins are empty you will need to carefully pry them out of the plastic case that it comes in. Sometimes this is really easy like on the video and sometimes I need to work at it a bit. If you find that the tin is glued firmly in place try heating the make-up case up with a hair dryer to soften the glue.
After the tins are loose from the plastic case use a paper towel to clean the tin more thoroughly. You might need to use some soap and water to really get it clean.
Once clean and dry you are ready to fill it with whatever the dolls in your dollhouse are asking for.
