First, remove the tag and the inserts in the tin.
Grab the lid of the tin with some tongs. (I used my Pampered Chef BBQ tongs since they have a non-metal handle and didn't want to burn myself)
I turned on the burner of my gas stove and held the lid over the flame until the paint started peeling. I knew it had been heated enough when the INSIDE of the lid turned brown. This is what it looks like when you are done "flaming" it.
I immediately immersed it in cold running water to cool it off.
You will notice that the inside of your tin lid turned a shade of brown. To remove this I gently sanded. Shown below is the charred lid with a couple swipes of the sanding block.
Dry off the tin and then use a Stampin' Up! sanding block to remove the charred remains of Elvis. *chuckling* This is relatively easy if you have it charred enough. This is what the tin lid will look like when you are done sanding. (if you do not have a Stampin' Up! sanding block, you can buy a similar product at the beauty supply store. It is a rectangular, white, fine grit sanding block.)
This is the finished inside of the lid
