I have a friend who is about to head off to Japan for a year, and he asked me to make him something to protect him on his travels.  This is what I came up with.


Outside


Inside

It is made of an Altoid type tin, but it is slightly smaller.  The symbol on the outside (for you non-gamers) is the symbol for the god Fharlanghn from D&D.  He is the god of horizons, distance, travel, and roads.  Since my friend is part of our gaming group, what better way to protect him (my boyfriend's idea). Smiley  And, I even made him a little Godzilla to play with which fits in the box.  Now my boyfriend wants a Godzilla of his own. Smiley 

The inside has his home town on the top and where he is going on the bottom.  This will help protect him on his trip there, on his trip back, and whenever he is in these actual locations.

Thanks for looking! Smiley

That was a sweet idea. I'm always amazed at what can be done with an Altoids tin.

Aw that's such a cute idea! I love the little letters you spelled Bay St Louis and Japan with.
