"My First Lunch Tin"


I have never made one of these before. It was my first time using Modge Podge too. It isn't' too bad. I will have to buy a smaller brush because the one I had was too big but it worked for this one. I made this for my neighbors daughter. She was over today after school for a play date so I thought I would make my first test one for her. She loved it.


So where did I get the lunch tins you ask? I got them at Joann's! $1 each. Yes only $1. I bought 12 of them. I thought they would make cute kid gifts. I am going to make some more and put some of those fun books and a pack of crayons or something like that in it. Or maybe some kind of card making kit with some pre folded cards, stamped images and envelopes and a $1 pack of gel pens from the Target $1 spot. I guess the possibilities are endless.

Love your alterations! Thanks for enabling me right into two of the pink/green combination and one of the other! *wink* I saw them over the weekend when I had to purchase the Iris Carts for 12 X 12 papers at a DEEP discount of 60% off! One is for myself... as everyone knows... I'm a paper addict! The second is for Sophie's new workspace we'll be putting in when we redo her bedroom very soon!

Hugs,
Anne :)

I bought a pink one at JoAnn's on Friday. I was hoping it would fit cards but it's a little small...I'll figure something out, but if you use yours for something specific, let me know!

thanks!

I did get only 1 of these lunch tins from joann's. the other 2 were scratched up. good thing I ahve a couple left from when they were at Target! these make great little girl bday gifts...fill them up with lip gloss, candy, socks, etc....
