What a great idea for smokers! (Using them for ashtrays/butt trays).

>How about decorating the tins and making up small sewing kits?

I have made mini sewing kits for my family members (mundanely) as gifts,
when money is tight and they work wonderfully! What I did was in the top of
the lid, I made a padded cusion and hot glued it to the lid....voila! pin
cushion! Word of Warning...do not leave sewing needles to run astray in
these tins as they have a tendancy to get stuck under the lip. Instead,
attach them to a piece of scrap cloth.

I have never decorated them....I wouldn;t have a clue as to how to do that.
I would think that paint would chip off easily, being that the box has a
smooth surface.  Any ideas??


*** St. Theresa's Prayer ****
May today there be peace within
May you trust your highest power that you are exactly where you are meant to
May you not forget the infinite possibilities that are born of faith
May you use those gifts that you have received, and pass on the love that
has been given to you....
May you be content knowing you are a child of God....
Let this presence settle into our bones, and allow your soul the freedom to
sing, and dance,
It is there for each and every one of you....
