I started out by emptying and cleaning out the Altoid tin. Make sure it is completely dry – and then spray paint it the color of your choice. I love this Turquoise spray paint – but it may not be a color for everyone. You could even just get black chalkboard spray paint and some chalk markers to decorate and personalize this.
I loved the solid and chevron patterns from this set of Gold patterened Washi Tape. I wrapped 3 pieces around the top of the Altoid logo and used my X-acto knife to make a clean cut on the back side.
I have some old business cards that now I’m turning into lunch box love notes :). I just had to trim the edge of the business card just a bit and it fits perfectly into the tin. Write a cute message on the back, and now those old business cards will get one more use before the recycle bin!
I made this turquoise flower with my flower loom and stuck a cute button on the front and a magnet on the back. My daughter will love this cute touch to her lunch box note – and I’m sure it will just be fun to play with the magnet during lunch time. You can see how I made the flower with the flower loom over here.
Don’t forget to add a special treat – like my personal favorite of Dove Dark Chocolate with Almonds.
I personalized the front as you could do too – make one for all of your kiddos!
