    Some of the sponsors on this site sell lunchboxes. If you ask on the Shop Till You Drop forum they will answer if they have them in stock.

    Otherwise you can use all sorts of tins - just keep a lookout when you are out shopping eg. cheap kitchen shops for plain silver tins or empty sweet tins. I've just decorated a tin that I got in Asda last month that had Always sanitary towels in it!

    Hi I am also new to the forum but for anyone interested in altering tobacco sized tins, M & S sell extra strong mints (99p) in tins of similar size. They are great for mini album storage. They make wonderful gifts once altered!

    I use mod podge to adhere my paper to tins. Some people say their paper creases/bubbles with this, but I have never experienced this, only positive results!

    I just use PVA glue, then i cover it in a few layers of PVA and water, to stop bubbling I userly use my fingers to smooth it down,
    Bought I nice lunch Tin in Tesco's and one in TK max, TK max do some lovely wooden stuff to alter like Desk organisers, Jewlery boxes etc.
    I really like at the moment the provo craft band aid tins (perfect size for my ciggy's lol)
