Lunch a Munch!

It's back to school time at (Some) Assembly Required. For September's challenge, please alter a lunch pail or similar container and link us up by midnight on Tuesday, September 30th. You can also email us your project. One lucky winner will receive the following prize pack filled with goodies!
Lunch pails can be found in the $1 section of some major chain stores such as Target and JoAnn Fabrics. You can also find some incredibly cool ones in flea markets and antique stores. Check out your attic - there might even be one there hiding there from your childhood! You choose the theme and final use. We are excited to see all the variations. Here's what our DT created:

Jan used a Maya Road tin and altered it to hold a custom-made tag album of her family's favorite places to visit. The inking and distressed edges are the perfect touch for a travel-themed project. Additional photos are in the gallery.

Patti altered a mini lunch pail with warm and cozy colors to house her favorite tea collection. She could also use this as a cute gift for a friend's birthday - perfect for those chilly mornings which are just right around the corner. A photo of the back of this tin is also in the gallery.

Jolene altered this mini lunch pail and created love notes for her son's lunch. The messages were printed on the computer, and images were stamped and hand-colored. The cards were then laminated so that they would be protected from spills at lunchtime and could be reused whenever possible.

Be sure to keep checking back to our Lunch Pail gallery to see what others create. Now is anyone else hungry besides me??
