Default Mini Lunch Tin idea:

I thought of an idea for the Target 1$ spot mini tins.
I bought a bunch for my daughters club. Could be used for girl scouts, classes, parties, art projects, ect.
The tin is a perfect size for 2 1/2 x 3 1/2" ATC's (Artist Trading Cards)Sample decorated Tin:

You decorate the outside of the tin.
All the kids, people... in the group make enough ATC's for everyone and swap.

I thought our girls could make their cards to represent themselves: favorite animals, colors, poems, words, things they like to do... and then they will swap and everyone will have a card about everyone else that will help them know eachother better.
Great ice breaker kind of thing.
I thought I'd explain it at one meeting then have them go out before the next meeting and find things: stickers, stamps, Joleen's type embellishments... and at the next meeting we'd all put them together.
Boy's could do this too, trucks, bugs, favorite foods, movies, sports...

I posted this in the Demo forum but thought I should post it here too.

Wow, great ideas and you did a beautiful job decorating the tins!
I'm not *into* the ATC's yet.... but I just know that before long I'll be addicted to them.
Thanks for sharing these ideas. They're great.
Have a wonderful stamp happy day!

I love the tins, I bought a few while tyhe sotres still had them. I went a few days ago to get more but all of the target stores around me (in Michigan) are all sold out and now have all their halloween stuff out. I wonder if any other store will carry them. I would love to get my hands on a few!!!
