Vintage Tin Tart Place Card Holders

Recently at the thrift store I was lucky enough
to find a whole pile of tart tins.

My first stop was Pinterest... surely I could find an idea for these great tins.

Bingo! I ran across Treasures from the Heart.

Barbara Jean gives a great tutorial where she used similar tins.

Please stop by to see the full tutorial.

I attached a circle of wire through two holes I punched in the tins.

The wire is the perfect place to hold name tags, chalkboard labels, or old photos.

The wire had a circular shape to it so the loops stayed in place.
