More gifts- Lunch tins

I have had these tins for many, many months. 7 of them to be exact. I stocked up and had intentions last year to alter them and give them as gifts. Now 12+ months have gone by and this year….YES I DID IT!!!! I altered 5 tins and filled them with various cards and envelopes and gave them to family members this Christmas. They were a huge hit! For all you SU demos– this is a great way to use up some retired paper. First I pre-cut 5 sets of paper. made templates and created a modge podge assembly line to cover them. I put modge podge on both sides of the paper. The Pink one was for my sister and the yellow one for my Mom.

I only took pictures of 4 of the tins- 2 more to show tomorrow.

Items used: petals and prints paper, provo craft lunch tins, various embellishments, pretties kit, the letters are Close to my Heart but I am not sure which set.

    I have one or two of these little tins left, maybe I should get them out! I like using these tins to make recipe card holders for shower gifts. Thanks for keeping us inspired!
