i want to make a bunch of little tiny embroidery kits

as gifts. i wanted to use candy tins. i'd put in some embroidery needles (glue a magnet inside the tin so the needles will stay put), a few colors of embroidery floss and some tiny fold  up scissors. i painted some of the little tins, but that just got messy and i don't think i have the right kind of paint anyway. it's not looking great on the aluminum tin.

soooooooooooooooooooo i just saw this for

embossed tins and i immediately KNEW this was MY solution! i am so going to do this! i have everything BUT the aluminum tape. that's easy enough to get. there are so many hardware stores around here,  you could throw a rock and hit one
