I used to use those as wallets. You could also use them as mini shadow boxes.

on cat morley's Cut Out + Keep website she's used a altoid tin to make a DIY fondue set which I think is pretty cool  Grin But if you bought them from a garage sale they might be a bit too ucky to use with food. But here's the link anyway: http://www.cutoutandkeep.net/project.php?id=112.

good luck !

A bit on the more practical side: if you have any leftover from your fondue experiments, they are perfect little crayon boxes.  Great if you have little kids in your life or if there's a little kid in you that still cannot live without toting crayons around.  They don't break in the box and they don't roll around in your pocket/bag/purse.  Also great if you like to travel with your crafts and you'd like to keep tiny notions in check.

i ended up covering one in clay and then making a mini scrapbook out of it  for my mom for her birthday - i made an accordion typed thing out of cardstock and put pictures and stuff on it....it looked really cool...i still have some left over though so im planning to make the fondue thing [yum yum!!!] and...i dunno what else...maybe more scrapbooks

They are amazing for holding art supplies in.  Such as charcoal sticks, graphite sticks, willow sticks,  conte crayons: I had a bunch of them when I was an art major.

They also make nice mini sewing kits to give as gifts or carry in your purse or bag.

They make good compacts too - you can stick a little mirror on the inside of the lid, and put tissues or a lipstick or whatever in them.
