I made this last week for someone’s special birthday. It holds a gift card from her friend, another one of my stampers. I started with a tin from a local store; I’m always looking to find ones that do not have a design on the side of the lid. Then I cover the top (using Multipurpose Liquid Glue) and decorate to my heart’s content. This one has a textured belly band. There’s a plastic insert inside that holds a gift card perfectly. Why give a plain gift card when you can alter a tin for something extra special?
(BTW, I have a Christmas version listed in my Etsy shop. Check it out!)
