I came upon this old tin and thought it was a perfect size to store any number of items in a studio or office. It measures 5" across and is 2" high. It also has an awesome old clip that helps open it up, the kind you just don't see anymore.
I've covered the top and sides and even the inside with vintage wallpapers, lace trim and chenille trim. I've even added a label so once you decide what you'd like to keep inside you can either stamp or handwrite it yourself.
This would also make a great little gift container.
