The young women of our church made these cute little emergency purse kits last night. We used empty Altoid tins, decorated with scrapbook paper. The paper was cut to fit within the embossed area of the lid. We made the pattern by placing our scrapbook paper face down over the embossed area. Then, while holding it firmly in place, we used the side of a pencil lead to make a rubbing of the embossed area. Then it was just a matter of cutting it out and gluing it on. We also covered the sides and back with paper. We sealed the tins with mod podge. The blue one is embellished with alphabet brads. I used my Crop-A-Dile II to punch holes right through the tin...it worked awesome! The red one has a bookplate held on by small silver brads.
If you would like to view a video tutorial on how to make these little kits covered with duct tape instead of paper and mod podge, visit my youtube channel and take a gander. Here's the link:

We filled them with various necessities. The little paper envelopes were cut using the Cricut. We folded and glued them together to hold a tiny sewing kit and pain relievers.
We filled ours with a wet wipe, cough drops, hair tie, pencil, emery board, band aids, sewing kit, pain reliever, hair pins, and spare change. You could totally customize it for your needs. These would make a great gift. I have seen similar kits for brides on their big day.
