Well, this is kind of a flip on the usual "I have too many altoids tins" threads. Does anyone know a brand of mints for which the tins are a little bit bigger (but still rectangle) than altoids tins? I want to make a protector/case for my iPod with holes drilled in for headphones, interaction, etc. I wanted to also make it so I can fit a band to it and attach it to my messenger bag for college  Tongue

Not sure whether or not they'd fit an iPod, but Altoids often has larger, novelty tins of mints.  They're probably at least 1.5xs bigger than the regular ones.  Target might sell them year round, but I know I've seen them around x-mas time.  Good luck!

I just then easily fit my ipod into a tin playing cards case. I dunno if that gives you any ideas, but it seems like it would work equally as well as mint tins would.

You can buy plain metal tins that are just a bit bigger than Altoids tins at Michaels.

Speaking of novelty Altoids tins, I saw heart-shaped ones at the grocery store last week.  It was by the Valentine's products.  I can't imagine giving your SO an extra-large container of extra-strong breath mints for Valentine's Day, but the tin would make a good gift box, after it had been craft-i-fied up.

1) make a sewing kit or first aid kit from it

2) decorate and make a shrine to your favorite 'fill in the blank here'

3) pill box
4) add a mirror for a compact
5) make lip balm to pour inside
6) Line with felt or velvet to make a travel jewlery case

You could always punch some holes in them and link them together with some wire and make a bag.

Now you can turn a Altioids Tin into a cover for your Ipod.
