The trick was to decorate an Altoid Tin, inside and out, and fill it with Halloween tricks or treats for your partner. The original thread can be found here.

Yay! First receiver I think! (At least first to post anyway.) Grin I got my tin from lindyv321 today!

Here's everything. (And I do mean everything!)


Let's see if I can mention it all...The tin has the kitty, fence, pumpkin and such on the top and the bat on the bottom. There's a bear dressed up in a costume, boo earrings, Halloween ribbon hair clips, Halloween photo stickers, bat magnet, little glass marble magnets, necklace with two scrabble tile sized charms: a Ouija Board and a monster grin, a bat clip with beads and the cutest little mini flashlight, Halloween erasers, a mini bat cookie cutter (and bat chip recipe), a sadly melted chocolate pumpkin (it's Florida, what can I say? We're still in the 90's) and it was wrapped up in the cute Snoopy fabric (which I think is enough to make a little wallet or something out of so I'm counting it as a gift too.)

Some close-ups:







The inside of the tin has candy corn paper lining:



There's also little rhinestones on the sides. It's really cool and man, I didn't know how much you could smoosh into an Altoids tin! (Ok, so the bear was outside. Ssshh, I won't tell. Wink )

Thanks so much, lindyv321!! Grin Grin

Cheesy Don't worry about it! It happens. I'll shove it in the fridge and see if I can get it to solidify a bit. But I DO love it all. It's great. I hope to get yours out in the next couple days. Grin
