This is my first altered lunchbox! I am totally addicted and plan on making more - for myself and as gifts for friends and fellow stampers. I think it needs something else on top, but haven't figured out just what yet.

I've been working on some as well and I admit, they are addicting! Love yours with the double pocket on the inside and the files you made for the dividers. I also think the top looks fine without too much stuff. I know the folks I would make these for wouldn't care much for having the handle tied with tons of ribbon strips so mine are just like yours with only one or two on the ends.

There are some ripples on the side pieces - the photo is fairly forgiving. I used sticky strip (that really sticky stuff with the red backing) to adhere the paper to the tin and so far it is working really well. Since it is paper and not cardstock, you can see that the paper is raised slightly where the tape is if you look for it. For my next one, I think that I will put the paper on the ends of the tin first to make any ripples less obvious. When you look at this one striaght on you can see the tape ripples easier since you can see small gaps where there isn't tape along the edge.
Overall though I am pretty pleased with this one - not bad for my first try IMO! :)
Thanks for all the nice comments!

Hi there, I just love your lunch box...wish it were mine. I have worked on a similar project using a box which makes for a very time consuming project still haven't quite got it right. The Metal box is just what i need to make life easier and also to make the gift so much more durable. ...Can you tell me where you were able to find the box, I would really appreciate it as I haven't seen anything like it. I live in Perth, Australia. I hope to hear from you soon.
Happy Crafting in the meantime!!!!
