Product Review - Tins and Containers

Do you wish you could give that special person something to go with a handmade card?  Do you like giving one-of-a-kind gifts that you made with your very own hands?  Well, look no further than Our Daily Bread designs' selection of tins and containers!  From bandage tins to clear pails to six-pack gift holders, you'll find the perfect container to alter! 


You can use decorative papers to cover miniature chocolate bars and arrange them in a rectangular tin to suit any occasion, just like this patriotic ensemble:

In the above example, Patriotic Stars paper by Masterpiece Studios and With A Bang double-sided paper by Moxxie were used to create the look of the American flag by cutting strips of papers and wrapping them around the chocolates.  Twelve pieces of miniature chocolate bars fit neatly in the rectangular tin with a hinged window!


The clear pail offers you endless possibilities, whether you fill it with small bottles of lotions or a small rolled up tee or even scrolls of various ODBD scriptures such as this one:

The clear pail was filled with scriptures that were stamped on light-weight cardstocks and then rolled up and secured with ribbon.


With one of the tins or containers, some decorative papers, embellishments and a little imagination you'll have a unique gift done in minutes!!  Don't forget to show us what you make by loading them in the ODBD Gallery!
