World's TINIEST lunchbox!

Ok...maybe not THE tiniest...but pretty darn tiny! How cute is this?

This little lunchbox used to hold bubblegum. It is about 2 inches by 3 inches by 1 inch deep. I used some printed "cork" paper and cut a strip the 1 inch width. Wrapped that around the lunchbox to hide most of the printing (and all of the advertising). To work around the handle I used the "Word Window Punch" from Stampin Up and punched an opening. The handle fit perfectly through the hole. Then I clipped of the ends of the punched out portion and glued it back in place (so there is no gap under the handle...only the handled edges remain "punched" and open. From there it was a matter of layering cardstock and decorating the tin.

The stamp set is a new one from Clear Dollar Stamps. It will be available June 1st! The "My Seashell Collection" I printed on the computer.

I really love how this one turned out.

Such a cute tin! That's a perfect tin for a seashell collector or a beach marine shop display. Love all your piercing and sewing!
