Default Need a tin to hold 25 cards/envies

Does anyone know of a good (ie cheapest) place to find tins to hold 25 cards/envies? Is that too many? If so, 25 cards would be ok.......

TIA!

Last year, Joann's (the store, not sure about online) had some really cute and inexpensive tins that they had on sale sometimes, othertimes I used my coupon, and they came in a variety of sizes, shapes and they ranged in price from $1 to $5 after using the coupon.

I know some of them would have fit cards nicely.

Do you have a Dollar Tree or a store similar near you? They sometimes have tins too.

Also, maybe getting a paper mache box and covering it with pretty papers &/or stamps to coordinate with the cards?

Good luck, I hope I helped you a bit!

I am looking for tins too. I need at least 10 of them so have been keeping an eye out.

I get my tins at the thrift store. They are usually food tins, but I sand them and spray paint them.
