A quick crafty storage post

I love tins. I collect them, meaning that I keep every single tin that arrives to this house containing food, presents... I cant throw any away, At most I give them away to friends. I needed one the other day so I ventured into my tin basket (above, a massive one) and I found one that was a watch box and still had the foam with the cylindrical cut.

Me encantan las latas. Las colecciono, lo que significa que me quedo cada lata que llega a esta casa. Nunca las tiro, a lo más que he llegado es a dárselas a amigos. 
El otro día necesitaba una, así que busqué en mi cesta de latas (arriba, es enorme!) y encontré una caja de reloj que todavía tenía la espuma con el corte cilíndrico.

And quickly I found a way to use. To keep my glues upside down while I am working - I don't keep them like that overnight as the foam would loose its shape after a while.

Y rápidamente encontré una manera de utilizarla: mantener los pegamentos boca abajo mientras trabajo - no los guardo asi por la noche porque la espuma perdería su forma después de un tiempo.

Added bonus, the foam is perfect to keep in place all those little needle tips and the tin holds nicely the magnets which I use often for many different techniques.
I love storage, specially if it is free!

Un valor añadido, la espuma es perfecta para mantener en su lugar todas esas pequeñas las agujas y la lata mantiene muy bien los imanes que a menudo utilizo para muchas técnicas diferentes.
Me encanta el almacenamiento, especialmente si es gratis!

Brilliant! This makes me want to buy a watch just for the tin and the foam!

Fantastic idea. I love tins also and parting with them is always difficult. But I love to find a new purpose for almost anything before it heads to the trash and this is great idea. You have me running to my tin stash to see what I can come up.
