Card Organizer Tin

Tonight I want to show you the cute card organizer tin we'll be making at the June 21st morning class. We'll be using cutie pie designer paper, Taffy and Rough Edges alphabet stamps, and lots of brads and ribbons to decorate the lunchbox tins and make 12 dividers. At the end of the class you will have a great box to keep all your cards and envelopes for different occasions as they come up, month by month.

Or, if you prefer, you could title the dividers differently and organize your cards by occasion types. Or you could forget about cards altogether and turn this into a recipe tin or something else altogether -- the only limit is your imagination.

Make one of these for yourself or make one for a friend and fill it with cards for a truly unique gift.

This is what the tin will look like on the inside, complete with a pen holder and a pocket in the lid for stamps and return address labels. In addition, there will be a printed table attached to every divider to write in the date, occasions, name of the card recipient and a description of the card (to make sure you never give anyone the same card twice, of course). I will also provide an electronic file with the template for the table so you'll be able to print off as many as you need for years to come.

This class will take place in Itasca on Saturday, June 21, 2008, 10 a.m. - noon. Registration and class fee of $20 will be due on or before June 10. The class will be limited to 10 students. Space permitting after June 8, club members will be able to choose this as their June class and attend at a reduced fee of $5.00.

If you would like to complete this project but cannot make it to class, the class kit will be available by mail. The cost will be $20 plus shipping. Shipping via USPS priority mail and is $9.80 for one or two kits shipped to the same address or $12.90 for 3 kits shipped to the same address. The class kit will include the tin and all materials necessary to make the project, including a stamped caption of your choice, except for adhesive (I recommend sticky strip), stamps and ink to stamp the dividers. Orders must be placed by June 10 and all kits will be shipped on June 23.

What a cute tin - Love the paper you used. I have one question when you cut the piece of paper for the top - How do you make the holes for the handle?
