Question lunchbox tin card organizers

I've made up some of the white lunchbox tins into card organizers. They're so stinkin' cute!

Has anyone sold them? If so, what price are you getting? These would be just the tin, no cards (they'd be sold separately)

Do you have a picture you can post of the ones you did? I'm planning to do some for Christmas gifts (that would include cards), and I'd love to see what you did!

I have altered the lunch box tins, not specifically for card holders though, just made them pretty.
I sold them at craft fairs for $15
someone bought one and said she was going to use it as her new purse!

SuG,
Where did you purchase your tins, and how much did you pay for them?
TIA

I sold 2 at a booth I had last winter for $18 each. I got them when you can use a coupon at Michaels or Hobby Lobby for 40% off so it made the price profit margin pretty good. If you buy them for $7 (their normal price) and use the 2 sheets of DSP, ribbon, embellishments, etc on them then the profit margin after all the work that goes into them doesnt make it worth it to me.

That was my thought, exactly!

I got my tins at HL, using a 40% coupon (I don't think I've ever seen them on sale).
There's a great gallery on this site. Look under Anything but a card, Contain Yourself, lunchboxes. I don't have mine up yet, but there's tons to look at and be inspired by.
