March-Altered Rectangle Lunch Boxes

Here are a few of the Altered Rectangle Lunch Boxes that we've made so far. There's so many things you can do to them. At our next class on March 24th, I'll (Kate) will be making a recipe box. My kitchen is in browns, coffee memorabilia and pink (Kitchen-Aid breast cancer awareness kitchen stuff). So I'll be designing a recipe box with the new Au Chocolat Designer Papers in the SU Spring Mini and using the stamp set "Expressoly You". Krystal and I recently purchased the SU set "What's For Dinner" that is used to make recipe cards. Should be a lot of fun!!!!! So to those that have RSVP'd make sure you have an idea of what you would like your tin to look like. Maybe it will be in your bathroom to hold hair toys, make-up, brushes. Krystal made one for her mom for Mother's Day. The one that says "Tami" was made for her for Christmas and was filled with all sorts of SU goodies. As you can see I have one just for my pictures to help keep them organized for scrap booking. The templates we'll be using are from The Card Ladies , they definitely come in handy!!! Hope these pics will inspire you to make your awesome creation!!!! THE POSSIBILITIES ARE ENDLESS!!!!!

What kind of adhesives do you use on your tins? They are so cute!

We used Mod Podge on these, but I'm thinking about using my xyron adhesive machine. I'm pretty sure we have the 500 which is plenty wide. Mod Podge is great and we only did the underside of the paper and then sealed the seams on the sides. Had to wear rubber gloves, that stuff, mod podge, really gets under the nails. Everything else is with dimensionals or Tombo Mono Multi.

I have a Xyron 500 and LOVE it! I was thinking the mod podge would be messy!! :)
