I just went to Michael's to scout some of these wedding favor tins out. Are they the ones with only a ring for a lid, not a cap? I didn't buy any yet. I wanted to make sure they didn't change the style or something.

I was also looking at those little candy tins, like a 1.5" square altoid tin. The ones that say "LOVE" on the top. I'm sure many heartfelt and ironic statements could be had from that.

I did pick up some candle cups/cans too, with a full lid. About 2" around and 1.5" high.

Wal-Mart has the wedding tins, too...and it was cheaper around here. They are the ones you described, though.

This is what the ones we use look like when we start out with them...

The top is a ring with glass in it. Measures approx. 2" diameter x 3/4" high.

And the bottom of one fits on the top of the other one with not much fuss?

Here's what I picked up at Michaels today, to fool around with, but it was just the tin, not the candle or all the geegaw stuff.

I think the top is steel though. Not sure about the body.

Actually you cut one tin to a height of 1/4" then they fit together with no fuss. Here's where you find the instructions on how to build this model... http://www.ionstove.com/build.htm#Production

Here's another option. Less expensive, but you have to add in shipping.

The colored ones are cool, but smaller.

Ok, couldn't find any at the Wal-Mart near me, so got a batch from Michael's. I see what you mean about fitting easily on the top ring.

I also bought a batch of the square mint tins. Couldn't resist. They probably have 80% the capacity of the round ones, but I just have to try.

Clay Alley is our supplier for the unfinished ones. LOL.
