Default What to do with the Large blue SU tins?

I'm looking for some ideas for the large blue tins from Stampin Up. I
purchased several for a workshop and am drawing a blank as to what to
do with them for class. Help!!!

Default su tins

I use the rub ons for the top, coordinating paper for the sides and embellish, and 2 stacks of a2 cards fit perfectly. Can be great for a mens survival kit.all sorts of cards for wife and mom...sorry, oops, anniversary etc.

The tins also are perfectly sized for holding a Glue Glider Pro and several refills.

Other ideas (not tried yet so they may or may not work):

Heat gun and/or embossing powders

Glitter and beads

Inkpads and reinkers

If you store ribbon on coasters they might fit (or you could trim down the coasters before winding the ribbon on them).

Markers


If you try any please share if they worked or not!


Happy Crafting!

I LOVE this tins and use them for all sorts of things. Several of them hold my spools of thread for sewing, one is holding my current cross stitch project, I have my crochet hooks and part of a project in one, my fabric scraps and notions, extra adhesives, all sorts of stuff to store! I LOVE THEM can you tell? LOL...And I'm thinking that they would make excellent boxes for Christmas gifts - both edible (cookies, fudge, caramels, all the fun stuff I like to make this time of year) and homemade gifts (post it holders, small altered composition books, mini albums - sets I'm making for family members for Christmas).

I use 1 for my markers.
I use some others to store things in like EP and ink spots.
I also have one that I keep images in to take up to my In-laws when we go so I can at least color while we are there for the day and they are perfect for this!

You can put two stacks of cards in one.. I store clear stamps in some.. cuttlebug/sizzix folders in one.. I have several and use them all for storage of one thing or another.

I realized that after my first post but didn't have any "pertinent" suggestions to make. But I did think of one that might work (not sure because the tins are turquoise instead of silver) ...

use re-inkers, rubbing alcohol (the higher the strength the brighter/truer the colros are, at least in my limited experience), cotton puffs and disposable gloves to do the polished stone technique. Add some coordinating ribbon, stick on some punched out shapes (or diecuts) and your customers used a fun technique, got to see the value of owning reinkers, and used punches and/or the Big Shot!

I use mine for holding pucnhes, but you could always use them as gift boxes after decorating. Perfect for decorating as a gift to hold hair stuff, makeup, or any crafting items. let me know if you want to get rid of them, I am interested. *~*

I have been looking for it here, but can't find it. But there's this one gal who stores all of her reinkers in the punch tin and they all fit perfectly (color families.. would probably run out of room with the in-colors). She took some chipboard and divided the box up in 4 different sections. I thought it was such a great idea, I plan on doing it myself.
