    Kae.Ryan’s little baggie of goodies will go into the mail on Monday (sorry I couldn’t get it out sooner). Read Post #16 and let me know if you want a baggie of possible items for your tins.

    This past Friday evening I went to Hobby Lobby to do some shopping for tin supplies. It was hard to edit! But I kept in mind the size of the tins and I can't fit everything in the store on them!
    My hubby and our Pekingese Charlie joined as well. I'm a huge fan of HL because of the selection and the store is dog friendly. Charlie gets tons of attention and loves it there!

    Just a funny (interesting?) little story - In the last Altoid tin Swap (Fairyland), haagmm got one of my tins and she liked how I had included a folded ribbon loop as a pull tab on the inside lid. So I thought I would do that again, but neither of my 2 sample tins have that ribbon tab because it’s an early step and I forgot I wanted to do it! You have to glue the raw ribbon ends onto the inside lid so the folded ribbon tab sticks out a bit, and then glue the little cardstock (or felt) inside the lid to cover the ribbon ends. So you see, the ribbon needs to be glued on before the background cardstock. You may want to try that, it’s a cute feature when you remember in time!

    Please sign me up! I love adding handmade art to my holiday tree, and these would be perfect! I have a few ideas, and a lot of altoid tins, so I'm excited to experiment.
    I updated my available ATCs on September 30th, 2019 . . . I have a lot of available cards, and I'm always willing to trade!

    Thanks for describing how to do it. If I can find appropriate ribbon I will be doing that!!

    My husband told me that before a work meeting yesterday his boss was in his office and asked for a mint. My husband offered him an Altoid... out of a baggie. We all know why so then he got razzed about having a baggie of unidentifiable white powdery lumps in his desk. (He works with juvenile corrections). Oops sorry!!

    CiCi thanks for the baggie of goodies. I can't wait to start. Do you a pic of the ribbon tab you were describing in post #33? I can't picture it.
