I recently bought a bunch of tin games on clearance at Target. The tin had some kind of brownish label on it. I covered it with colorful paper, used my crop-a-dile to punch a hole and connect a brad to the corner, and attached a piece of ribbon. I made sure the ribbon was long enough so that a tiny pencil could reach to the score pad.
On the inside lid I put a piece of cardstock and used some strips of paper to make a tic-tac-toe board. (The tin actually came with the game printed on the lid, but it was yucky.)
