I have been hanging on to this empty Altoids tin for a long time, waiting for some sort of inspiration. I knew it had to be good, because they no longer make these tins with a flat lid. Total bummer if you ask me!
Well, since I am cheap, I mean thrifty, I never by Chip Clips. I always use binder clips or clothes pins. Well, guess what fit perfectly into this tin...?
Pretty neat! I couldn't leave them plain since I was making them for a gift, so I matched them to the outside of the box. I used patterned paper and Modge Podge on the tin and the clothes pins...
and then decorated the lid with ribbon. I added a shabby chic flower I made using a brad, small flower, and a scallop punch. I printed the words out from my computer. (See top photo.)
Hope you liked this slightly unconventional idea! Have a great day!
