I plan on using one of those C.O. Bigelow mint tins from Bath & Body Works (on clearance now for $1!) if that's OK.

I'm eating them right now as fast I can!  I love the sours too, but the tins are embossed, I don't know if that will work  Undecided

I'm purchasing the box too, if my partner (whoever that is...) wants the mints, I'll send them on.

I was pondering the box itself and remember that the first rules stated everything must sort of fit in the box, am I right? Remembering the sculpture on the tin, are we allowed to attach bigger items on the tin, thus altering its shape but still being within rules?

I would think if it still fits the 4x4 rule, it should be ok....Qazicat, am I right?

I don't know what one of those tins looks like.  (I live in Australia.  We don't have Bath and Body works)  so long as the tin doesn't exceed  4 x 4 x 1 inch as set out in the rules then the tin is fine.

I may need to think about it.  Technically speaking the rules says that it must fit inside of the tin.
What is the size of the tin? Is it smaller than an altoid tin?

I just did an altoid tin for my father for Father's Day---it was inspired by Round 1----and it was so much fun.  I enjoyed the creation of this minature fishing world.....I should have filled it with fishing supplies!

Anyway.....

I may have to fill out the questionnaire and pop it in the PM mail system!

I attached big stuff to and under mine & it was within the rules (for Round One, at least)http://www.columbusgamers.com/sweetness/stifflerstin.html

I'm not sure how we could decorate it without attaching stuff to it one way or another.  I guess it just depends what you decorate with.  Whether it's decorated with paper, clay or with a tennis shoe, as long as it's attached to the tin, I don't see how it could be outside the guidelines.  But obviously I'm a little bias!  Cheesy

It's up to the organizer though, so maybe it's different for this one?  I don't see anything about it in the specifications.  Smiley

If ya look close, you can see a ribbon tied across her lap.  I had to do that to keep her closed 'cause I kept stuffing stuff under her tush!  Those tins don't hold much, it's like a sick puzzle trying to fit everything you want inside.

In round one, I packed mine about five times before I could get that sucker to close.

I love a challenge, though!

Put your name down, snacker. You know you want to.  Cheesy

The decorating part I'll be able to do I'm sure, the filling part is going to be hard!

I think I'll figure something out... maybe Ill go through the gallery from round 1 again and try to get an idea of what people did
