Hmmm, wasn't quite sure where to put this one so I'll put it here unless someone suggests otherwise...

I was partnered with the one and only rackycoo for the Altoid Tin Halloween Swap so I knew I had to pull out all the stops to create something as fantabulous as I possibly could. I decided to turn my wee Altoid tin into a haunted house...



Unfortunately the stupid cat decided to jump off during delivery so he didn't arrive intact. Here's the back, inside and the goodies packed within....








P.S. Thanks racky for letting me swipe your pics!

This is absolutely awesome!  I love the goodies and the cat, not to mention the paint job you did.  Excellent!

There's not much in this world that can't be improved by either chocolate, bacon or glitter.

I'm so glad you gave this its own thread. It's about the coolest altoid tin ever!

There's no way I'll be able to put this away after Halloween. It will have to be a year-round display.  Grin
