Tiny Collage Boxes


Ever wonder what to do with the tiny metal boxes you get embellishments in? They are just too cute to toss.

Using Alcohol Inks on the cover, paint on in several colors and layers for deep rich color.

Cut out PID image and decorate with words, stickers, or rub ons as you like! Gently push under metal lip into place inside lid.

A great little box for a small gift or trinket.

Create ART!

Great way to go green--recycle those containers into gorgeous gift boxes. And a good excuse to buy more embellies that come in those cute tins.

Wonderful idea...and I agree, those containers are TOO I have to confess there have been times when I've bought something mainly because of the container!
