I painted the two tins a bright red to resemble an old tool box like this
I used two tins to get the right depth one was just too flat. You could actually write memories or a nice note to share to put in one tin and a gift card in the other.
When the paint was completely dry after several coats I glued the two tins together with E6000 glue and allowed it to completely dry.
I marked where the screws would be for the handle and then started a small hole with an ice pick. I placed the handle on and screwed in the screws and placed the nuts on the inside to hold it securely in place... Tahdah a mini tool box great for gift cards!
