Need Help with Tin foil mold

Trying to make an ATC with a tin item and  the glue I have will not work and the paint will not stay so help please. I have a vision in my head and just have to use this little tin. Oh and tape fell off.

What can I do to make things stick on it?

Put a blob on a piece of card or plastic, transfer from that blob to the place you want it using a matchstick or cocktail stick.

If you make sure the surfaces are clean and as horizontal as you can get it, it'll stick pretty much anything.

If you're precise with the "stick tool", you will not have a mess and the "seal" will be invisible.

Use AQUARIUM sealant so as to ensure that any left overs and matches, etc going in the bin will not harm the enviroment.

I done this before to help my daughter with a school art job, and it works a treat (she was sticking Coke cans etc to a big box!

Good luck!

PS Hope that all made sense! Let me know how it goes?

Just a shot in the dark here, but what about jewel glue?   Kip
