I'm holding a lunchbox class on the 23rd, so I had to jump in & make a sample finally. This one actually ended up being an end-of-year gift for my son's FABULOUS teacher. She's one of those people that goes the extra mile & really appreciates gifts from the heart - & she really loved this (filled with cards, of course).
I used the tag punch to cut out the notch on the front - worked like a charm, I was so excited! I also used sticky strip, instead of Mod Podge, to adhere my paper. I cannot remember who gave us the hint here to peel just part of it to start with, place the paper, then peel & stick the other parts. That worked so well & now I'm confident I can instruct my customers on it. I took inspiration from MANY of the tins on this site. I actually made a folder on my desktop for them & just kept pasting pics in there for inspiration. Thank you all :-)

Love the brightness and cheerful display!!! You did a great job!! I've got some tins just collecting dust because I'm a little afraid....but this has certainly inspired me!!! Using the sticky tape will be a great "up-sell" too!!! TFS!

another option that works great is Elmer's Craft Bond adhesive spray. Just spray the back and sticks really strong...can even lift up if you do it fast and reposition to get it right. Then dries permanent.
