I love to alter objects. I especially like the little lunch box tins. Last year I did some at Christmas as prizes for my Annual Girlfriend Christmas party, they were a hit! I had put some little travel Bath & Body Works stuff in them. I made one not long ago for my aunt and put notecards in it and gave it to her for her birthday. I have been looking for more but couldn't find any. Well I found them online for like $4 or $5...which I do not want to pay!
Today I had a few extra minutes between clients and ran into Dollar Tree to look for something...I didn't find what I was looking for but I did find tins!! I was so excited! I bought quite a few since I do love them and love to do them for gifts.
So if you are in search of tins you might check your Dollar Tree!
Here are the tins. I have I think 8 A2 size cards in the dome one and 12 little note cards in the mini lunch pail one. I can't wait to alter these! To make things easier I will make a pattern out of heavy cardstock so I don't have to measure every time I want to alter one. I can't decide if I need to spray paint them or not. Today it is too windy to spray paint so I will have to do it without spray painting.
Here is a picture of them open and with the cards in them.
