This company sell them at a pretty reasonable rate. I have ordered from them before and the shipping is super quick!

I love this idea! I think I might steal it and decorate with Christmasy ribbons. So much more personal and creative than tins!

Joannes had them in jewel tones when I was in there yesterday, and they appeared to be on sale. At the very least, you could get some and take one apart to steal the pattern.

I went to a local restaurant supply store and bought a huge stack of Chinese take-out boxes a few years ago.  They've come in very handy as temporary containers for all kinds of small items, from food to gifts to craft supplies.

If you prefer to make your own, here are some linky-links to templates that might be useful:

Or you could order Chinese take-out from a local restaurant, empty out the box, rinse it well, unfold it and trace around the edges to make your own template.

Forget the ordering - if you go to a Chinese restaurant, they'll sell 'em to you cheap. Anything not pinned down is for sale!
