AG Thermos Tutorial!

Mimi here! Today I thought I'd post a tutorial on how to make a doll thermos. It's really ridiculously simple, so I didn't take pictures of every step... :)

What you need:
A pill canister or something like an old chap stick holder
Aluminum foil (or tin, it doesn't really matter)

Take the aluminum foil, and cut a piece wide enough to go around the container with an overlap. Make sure that it is longer than the container by about a quarter of an inch.
Wrap the foil around the container. As you can see in the picture above, the foil does not cover the top white bit. Take care that it doesn't cover it overly much. If it does, the thermos won't close properly.
Squeeze a line of glue onto the foil, and glue it down. Carefully press the extra quarter of an inch against the bottom of the container.

Lid: Cut a strip of foil wide enough to go around the lid, with overlap, and extra length again. Glue it, and press the extra onto the top. Trace the top of the lid onto a piece of foil. Cut out the circle, and glue it on top.

If you like, you can draw a black line around the base of the lid. You can also fill it with colored Acrylic Water to simulate a beverage inside.

Enjoy! :)
