Creative Gift Containers

Brightly painted metal containers have magnetic appeal for attention-grabbing letters and symbols.

These decorated tins make ideal gifts for anyone with something to hide -- like office supplies, kitchen gadgets, or a collection of receipts. You can scour flea markets for boxes, or check out a local crafts store. Then let your imagination run wild.

See below for our suggestions for personalizing your gift boxes.

Instructions:

  1. Purchase brightly painted metal containers and add appeal with magnetic letters and designs.
  2. Create your own magnets by purchasing magnetic strips and attaching printed letters or hand-drawn designs.
  3. Top your boxes with other flashy elements like paper flowers or a row of small magnetic colored blocks.
  4. Add file-drawer labels that announce the recipient's name or the contents (like a selection of hard candies).
