I have a few of these tins that I have covered and use for all sorts of neat stuff. I have one that I keep my straight pins in. Another is used as a mini first aid kit; I keep it in my car. I have been know to fill them with candy(usually does not last long). I even know a lady that uses hers as a personal ashtray.
This listing is for the tin shown in the first couple of pictures.
Would make a great gift for a teacher, mom to be(can be used in diaper bag), your favorite sewer, anyone.
