I used to use these tins as my gift packaging for small quilts which I called Quilted Greetings in a tin. The image on the small quilts usually reflect the occasion being celebrated. If the occasion was a birthday the small quilt will have a birthday image or a birthday greeting on it. This time I have attached leather straps for easy carrying which makes it even more great for gift packaging.
I did a decoupage on one of the tins using white polka dots with red background napkins. The leather strap handle is coloured black with two gold brads on each side to hold the strap to the tin. Any of these tins are great to use for packaging birthday cookies or any birthday present, Christmas or to package valentines day presents.
Here is the decoupaged tin with black leather handle -
and here is a sample of a small quilt that I made and think will be great as a Valentines present or any special occasions for someone you care about.
On this particular tin with a cream-coloured leather-strap handle, I printed on a self-adhesive inkjet fabric sheet the word 'Luck' to celebrate St Patrick's Day.and here is a recommended small greeting quilt that will go nicely with the leather handled tin -
Am starting to make a lot more of this quilted greetings again and will be posting it in my online gallery. They measure about 30cms x 30cms and I could customise the label for you depending on the occasion if you are interested on the leather handled tin for packaging. The small quilt greeting would cost you $39.95 plus 10.00 if you are opting for the tin. I dont make the tins I buy them but the label(s) and the small quilts are all made by hand by me.
