Lightbulb $1 Lunch Tin Ideas

Hey all of you fabulous women on SCS - have you been to the Target $1 Spot lately? There are $1 Lunch Tins there that just scream out to be decorated. So I bought 6 of them - but I don't know what to put inside them. Can you guys give me some ideas???

I *think* they're big enough to put cards/envelopes inside but I was hoping for some other ideas too. Maybe if I get enough good ideas, I'll go buy some more.

Thanks for your help!

I picked up a couple, too. I will probably make mini albums out of them. Just cut, then fold paper accordian style, cut to fit the tin. I'll round the corners of the accordian paper to help it fit better.

You could put photo cubes in them. those little 3x3 wood blocks that you decorate with photos and accessories.

You could put Mini composition notebooks and coordinating pens inside.

You could put note cards in them the 3 1/2 x 5 cards

You could put gift cards in them, the 2 3/4 x 3 7/8 cards

You could put 3 x 3 cards in them. Those are so cute.

You could cut a hole in the front with a saw and them after taping a window sheet on the front, you could fill it with candy!!!

Fill it with embellishments or premade tags, that the recipiant could put on cards, scrapbooks pages, ect.

put in a small stamp set

put in a punch or punches

give the neautral watercolor wonder crayons to someone who bought the large tin of them and don't have them yet
