Creative uses for tins

I'll admit.... I love tins! I was buying dishwasher soap like a madwoman when it was in they oh so adorable tins. There was a post on Papertrey Ink's forum asking about creative uses for tins. Here is what I had come up with...

Besides the nuggets some ideas I have come up with...

Toothfairy tins
Small note card kits
Memory game
Survival kits
Small first aid kit
Container for those small make up items like lip gloss and nail polish that walmart carries.
Photo tins - photos on punched shapes and strung together on ribbon
the tall tea tins for an 'over night' carrier... toothbrush, small toothpaste, etc.
a 'keep the kids entertained while traveling' kit
Baby announcements
Wedding shower favor gifts
baby shower favor gifts
Christmas tree keepsake ornaments
shadow boxes
Jewelry boxes

I'm waiting on an order from specialty bottle to get started on a few of these ideas.
