Repurposing: "Between the Acts" Vintage Cigar Tins

We have a supply of "Between the Acts Little Cigar Tins" in the Mercantile.  These were originally smoked between the acts of a play.  Today, these tins can be repurposed to hold small supplies,  notes, and photos.  With such an endearing title on the front of the tin, you can use them to highlight an event such as a play, dance, or other performance.

I used the title on the tin as inspiration to hold photos of my niece's recital.  Most of the photo were taken between the acts!

This was done quite simply by adhering my photos onto a folded piece of cardstock that was cut to fit.

Why not be inspired by your own Between the Acts Vintage Tins?  You can find them at the JBS Mercantile here: Vintage Between the Acts Little Cigar Tins
