Upcycled tobacco can births mini drying kit in a can

If you follow my other blog, you know I am really into herbs and natural food and stuff like that.  I have tutorials on how to preserve and use certain things over there.  My drying line is simple: 2 cup hooks with a piece of jewelry wire looped at each end to hang on those cup hooks like a clothesline situation, then mini clothespins to hold your herbs up while they dry.  Like this:
I've been asked by a couple of people to make a little herb drying kit for them, so they can dry herbs as well.  I was laying in bed one night thinking of what I could use for a container, when I spotted one of my husbands empty chewing tobacco cans.  HA!!!  Thus the Mini Herb Drying Kit in a Can was born AND I finally figured out a way to recycle my husband's bad habit residue!
