Vacation In A Can

a carton of 3 round metal containers with clear lids

I've admired these magnetic metal spice containers at Ikea but have been stumped for a use.

I made a fake vintage postcard using two of my photos. The tins allow for an image 3.5 inches in diameter. We collect sand everywhere we travel so I had some available to insert in the tin.

The depth was a bit more than I wanted so I put 2 layers of corrugated cardboard behind the printed image.

The photo came out very blue because every time I got near a light source the plastic lid had reflected images. My inner 12 year old goes Blue Hawaii and giggles. The tin insert actually looks like the image above but with sand.
