The new Rectangle tins are going to be perfect for the Holidays. The tins are sized big enough to hold credit card sized gift cards or cash of course. I’ve decorated this one for Autumn.
When you make something like this, you want the paper wrap to be taped to itself, rather than to the tin. This allows the recipient to slid the wrap off the tin, instead of ripping it apart. Remember to have your paper seam be on the top front of the tin. The label covers the seam entirely, leaving the back of the tin nice and neat.
This tin would actually make a nice place-setting at Thanksgiving and you can fill the tin with a bit of candy or a couple cookies. Just add the person’s name to the label and place at each seat for a lovely gift.
