I made this as part of my mom's Mothers Day gift, she LOVES Sudoku. I took an Altoid's tin, lined the inside with felt (pink of course). Then I printed out tons of Soduku games and xerox'd them at work to a smaller size so they'd fit. Then I made two little marble magnets with scrapbook paper, and as you can see, the game you're playing can be stuck to the back.

Its great for when shes stuck at one of my sister's dirtbike races.. she LOVED it!

I started asking friends if I could have their empty tins and before I knew it, I had tons of them given to me. So I figured I better start crafting with them LOL!

Very clever.  I have tons of altoids tins and have been experimenting with them.  I never thought to add something on the inside.  Verrry cool!

Yes, my thoughts exactly.. I had thought about puting one in there but couldn't find one in time =) I guess I could stick one of those erasers that go over erasers on one? hmm..
