I bought several of these metal boxes at my local scrapbooking store and decorated them. They are the perfect size for standard cards. I have made several for gifts. I make dividers for the inside with tabs that say "birthday", "thank you", "sympathy", etc or else I put the names of the months on them. Either way I fill them with card for the recipient and they love them. It works out good, because I love making them, too.
