Slide-Top Tins!

I almost couldn't contain my excitement over this new project, so I feel like I've been holding my breath until now! Months ago, I got some adorable little slide-top tins from my friend, Lea, who runs a supply shop. I'm sure you've seen these little guys around, usually with gorgeous washi paper adorning their tops.

I didn't really have a use for mine when I bought them, but I've held onto them anyway, waiting for inspiration to strike. Just last week, I thought we should try sandblasting one just to see what would happen. I'm so stunned by the result, that I had to make a little video of the tin to show you!

Not only could I use these for packaging my new earrings, but I could also customize them for other crafty-people. I could do logos, product names (for lip balms and such) or just keep doing my own designs. What do you think? :D

I think you should consider selling them as well! Those are HOT!

Those are freaking awesome!!! Wow, I am really amazed at the result. Great idea! I think you should have a handful of your own designs to choose from, as well as taking custom orders. Sweet!

Those are great Amanda. I think that's a terrific idea. And by the way you have very nice fingernails. I'm very jealous.

I want one! I could make mini business cards to put in them. Also would just be handy to have in the purse to hold change or loose earrings.

I totally want a couple with my logo. How much would they cost?

Also want those earrings.. ooohh shiny

LOL! Autumn, thank you! I'm sort of surprised, myself, that my fingernails didn't look too ratty. ;)

Still figuring out prices for those tins... I'd want to make them cheap enough that I could wholesale them to people for just a couple bucks apiece.

Yeah, they'd be great for holding Moo cards and other stuff. I have one of MissPurl's with stitch markers in it for my knitting. It's perfect!
