it would be cool if you could do a square tin on it's side like you were saying for the big round ones. you could put gussets in the sides somewhat like this book purse

and attach a hinge at the bottom so the lid didn't come off, but would just open instead. that way you wouldn't have to worry about all of your stuff winding up on the floor.

Sweet idea!

I've got a stash of tins and lunchboxes that I keep trinkets and supplies in, but this would be a great use, too!

Thank you so much!!!  Shocked Amazing purse, tutorial and a fab. idea!!! I so wish I would have seen this earlier (have been struggling with a very stubborn book-purse for over a week!) But at least now I know what to do with my ever-growing collection of tins!  Grin

Great idea and just a suggesting for making a tin purse that hangs on the side... like someone mentioned earlier... put hinges on the bottom...

I'm not sure if you can find these anywhere easily... but you can attatch a latch to the top... either ones that are held with a lock or not... I have a few tin purses I bought over the years and they all have this latch... generally they lock down on themselves... kinda like the ones on suitcases...

I was lucky.  It was left over from Christmas, and had animal crackers in it.  It was meant as a stocking stuffer or something, but I got it on clearance for $1.  I don't know if I've seen them before in the bank style.  I just happened to be looking for tins, and I just happened to find it.   Cheesy  And the animal crackers were yummy too!

So, not that I want to intice anyone into making something just like mine, but if anyone is interested in the canister-like tin/bank I used on this project, they still have them at the same grocery store, though by now the cookies inside are probably stale.  They have them in two colors for a buck each.  I'll pick them up and send them off if you like.  I'm going to have to buy myself a couple more just to have around, since they're kinda unique as far as tins go...
