I have 5 of these cracker tins from Sky flakes they are square with circular openings and the lids come completely out and i dont have the lids anymore. They look very retro in there shape to me and i wanted to make some kind of organizer for the garage where my crafts are, i just have a block as to how to do it.

Heres a couple pictures....

you could paint them and glue them together on the sides all in a row, poke some holes in the back with a nail and then hang them up for reach in storage,

or you could poke two holes( one one either side near the top) and thread wire through to make little hanging baskets, kind of like those baskets you see in kitchens that people keep their onions in

Hey, those are kinda cool! I'd use them for wrapping for bracelets or other smallish presents. People think they've got a box of crackers for their birthday, then - wait! its a bracelet! i dunno...maybe thats the sort of wierd thing only i would do Huh

Sogno- those are beautiful. Since we just moved i actually get a craft room now so i can do these and im definitely going to use what youve done for a model for mine, to match my room colors and style.

cebsme -I would probably just keep the tins as they are! They're cool. Or I'd use the sheet metal to make jewelry/hair pins or flowers... I do like a tin can! Wink

I have a cupboard full of tins - I keep them all, and yes, hubby does get annoyed, LOL!

I do similar to Sogno plus a few other ideas:

I use ordinary craft glue to wrap fabric around them, using large ones for wastepaper baskets and smaller ones for pen/pencil holders on my desk (no handle on them though).  These also make great house warming or office warming gifts.

I use them to wrap gifts - if you have a gift that would fit into a tin, wrap the tin with cellophane paper and tie the cellophane together at the top with a pretty ribbon (the tins are not covered, just left silver after the original paper wrapping is removed).

With or without some kind of wrapping on the tins, you could make two little holes on either side to string a ribbon handle through, put a few fresh picked flowers in, and hang them from your patio or trees if you're having an outdoor get-together with friends.
