I fell in love with these little tin lunch boxes at the Target dollar
section and when Ruth came up with this swap I knew that I had to use these.
I liked the pattern on the side, so I had to de-construct the lunch box. The
top comes off by bending the hinges, but I had to use a chisel and hammer to
break the rivets in the bottom. I cut the side piece so I had one long piece
of tin that I hammered flat with a rubber mallet. I folded a piece over,
hammered it flat, cut out the shape, punched 2 holes, set eyelets in the
holes. I used 18 gauge wire to wrap a loop at the top and 20 gauge wire to
add the dice bead at the bottom. I hammered small alphabet bottle caps flat
and glued each persons initial on a charm.
