Online you can check creativexpress.com or orientaltrading. Oriental Trading's are a bit different and there have been some threads comparing them...also if you scroll allllllll the way down towards the bottom of this page, you'll find threads similar to yours. Alot of the in person stores are out of stock.

You can find them at Michaels, and Joanns. You can also get them on ebay if you can't find them.
Also type in tin lunch boxes in a web search and you will find sites that sell them. I did order 12 awhile ago, sorry I can't remember the name of the site, but they were 4.69 each...good luck

Default Lunch Box Tins

I ordered two yesterday from ebay. A lady out west is selling 2 for $4.00, and $4.00 and some change for ship and handling. So I got two lunch box tins for $8.00. They are Provo Craft, I hope they arrive in good shape!! Looking forward to receiving them and trying my hand at this! If this goes well, I will be ordering more1

I haven't been able to find them near me, did a quick search on line and found Provo Craft, saw how much they were not on sale lol, and when I found these on Ebay, I thought I would give it a try.

Be VERY careful when you order from ebay. Most of the ones I saw on there are too small for cards (I think they are the exact dimensions for our cards). This is actually why they are probably on ebay, because someone ordered the wrong ones.

You can call around to JoAnn Superstores (gotta be superstores) and see if they have any. I called 32 stores last week looking for enough to do my 6 classes I lined up. I did find three stores that had at least 10 in stock, so I bought out what those stores had, rather than go with the stores that only had 2-4 in stock. They cannot order them as the warehouse is out of stock as well. They will ship them right to you and the s&h fee is great! I think I paid $5 s&h for 10 and $8-10 for 36. Big box and takes only 2-3 days.

The best site I have found for them is
http://store.crazyscraps.com/whatsnew.html
they carry all of the different styles, and the ship really fast. I order some on a Tuesday night and My Thursday they were at my door. They also carry lots of other fun toys too!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I ordered the purse-type ones from Oriental Trading for "goodie bags" for my dd's birthday. They were 4.95 each but arrived in 2-3 days.

The cards fit great in them. Never thought to check creative express.

Michaels here does not have them, the closests Joanns (45 min) is NOT a superstore. Out of stock online.

I was totally disgusted with our Joanns when the tin sale came around. Only the super store had them in our area and they only had 6! Gimme a break! 6 for a million person metro area. So I put my order in to KMA (Keeping Memories Alive). They were $4.86 (or so) each and I happened to get a $1.99 shipping. They are on backorder but I didn't care.

Liz, how big are the ones that you got at Oriental Trading? Are they the same size as the Provo Craft ones (those are 6.75" x 5"x 4")? Just wondering.

Sorry- not Liz, but I can answer that one for you. They are deeper than the PC ones and have a glossy rather than matte finish. I think the OT ones will hold more cards (obviously, huh) but I think the PC ones are easier to work with (my personal experience). I am doing a class this weekend with the OT ones, will let you all know how it goes. HTH!
