More Lunch tins!

I made these 2 tins for my Mother in law and my Sister in law. My 2nd sister in law got one as well but I did not take a picture (gasp!) I know, I should have taken the picture- but I swear the modge podge was drying as she was pulling in the driveway!

I also did not take a picture of the inside. (gasp!) Each tin had the inside of the lid covered with matching designer paper. There were 6 coordinating tabs/dividers. I used the retired Riveting hostess set from last year. This example will give you a good idea: Click HERE I left off the brads, but the 6 categories worked pretty well for the cards, and I added 6 misc. cards in the back of the tabs as extras since they did not have a specific category.

These gifts were such a hit! Each one of my relatives pulled the cards out to admire each one. I don’t know about you, but I have over 100+ cards. I make them and throw them in the basket. this was a perfect way for me to unload my less than favorites and let many others enjoy the cards. I am hoping they don’t hoard them! This year I am much better at making and sending them but I still have a good stash! Next year, they will get a refill pack if I have enough cards.

I went to a class to learn how to cover these tins. For those that don’t have a class for this near you: here is a great tutorial from Splitcoast! Click HERE
