Any idea what I could use those for? I've ended up with about ten of them over the years as a result of all my pencil-ly exploits and I'd love to find a nice use for them, I can't be the only person in need of some ideas for them. They are too flat to hold much in (apart from pencils really) or to do some of the things done with altoid tins.



many thanks in advance  Wink

(P.S incase you're not sure what type of tin I'm talking about, it's this type of thing: http://www.artycat.com/acatalog/DerwentGraphicTech12.jpg, http://www.pencilrevolution.com/uploads/mcclure3.jpg)

OR you could use them to make cards!!!!!!!!

I was just thinking that you could make a smallish sketchbook/journal and stick it in there with a few pencils.  The pages wouldn't get damaged and it would be nice and portable.  You could decoupage the outside and make it all snazzy, even adding a strap so you could carry it like a purse or a wristlet.

Maybe a checkbook and a pen would fit in there?  You could make some pockets for cards and ID and change and have the coolest, flattest purse out there!

I think I need to buy some pencils. . .
