My stamp campers made these yesterday and loved them! Very easy and a lot of fun. The ideas for "insides" are endless... :) I found the plastic "stones" we used at the $1 store - they had all kinds of colors, so I know I'll be going back for more! The layers are popped-up to add dimension.

Thanks much, everyone. :) Watchmaker tins were originally used by watchmakers -go figure! - for holding all the little parts for their craft. The tins all fit into a box and with the clear tops you can see what's inside. They've been adopted by crafters for holding little bits and pieces of all kinds of stuff: beads, eyelets, snaps, brads, etc. I got mine at Michael's. They had two sizes and this was the larger one (came in a stack of 3). If the lid is a little loose, use a bit of Crystal Effects - AFTER you have finshed "loading" your items - to seal it up so it doesn't come off and any loose decorations fall out. Holler if any other questions! :)
