wow! this sounds like a great idea! one thing before i sign up though,
im in the UK. Is an altoids tin just any metal tin that is the size that you gave?
Sorry, I know someone already asked this question, but I have never seen them  before, but Ive googled it and had a look, but wasnt sure if I had to get a particular brand, or just any.
Sorry, hope that hasnt confused you!

Altoids is a brand of breath mints in the USA...IN the UK they are called Marks and Spencers Curiously strong mints.....they are small tins
They're approx.  9.5 cm x 6 cm x 2 cm/  But to answer the question....You can use any tin that is in the size of an Altoids tin....

FOOD FOR THOUGHT GIRLS OUT OF THE USA.....WHen you do swaps with American girls...LOL...Ask them to toss in some altoids even just the empty tins LOL you will be shocked at how many will send them to you....Tooooo much fun to alter them...

I think it is funny to see the Questionairs...We are all so very different in what we want....LOL...

Can't speak for anyone else, but I think my celebrity crushes are a bit ....  odd lol  My husband swears I'm bizarre.  He says I have "scrawny white boy syndrome" which worked out well for him since he fits that description lol  I picked two of my more normal celebrity loves for my questionnaire.  I thought about picking a third, but anyone one I could think of seemed like it might be weird to work an Altoids's tin around lol

I'm totally looking forward to seeing who everyone else picks!

I'm in the UK too, and I only recently discovered them lurking in waitrose with the chewing gum and things like that. Wish you luck in finding one  Wink

hmm...this sounds really fun! i haven't swapped in FOREVER. (school get's in the way of all the good stuff!) but this sounds like just the thing to get me back into the swing of things. and it's pretty small, so it won't take up too much time. i think i may be in...

 OK...For all the guys and gals overseas....Altoids is a brand...it is breath mints in the USA but they are sold under different names in the UK and other countries...It is not the Altoids you will need but a tin that is the same size...You need to find one and alter it inside and out all about the Actor or singer YOUR PARTNER CHOOSES...

 Lets say your partner picks John Lennon....YOu would alter a tin all about John, fill it with items all abot john and make one items that will not fit in the tin to go along with BUT AGAIN this must be all about John....

Simple swap but really fun....

Think out of the box on this one...I am really getting excited....

Extra item can be anything...Make a pillow, a pillow case, a bag, a tee, earrings,necklace, a nightlight, a planter, an embroidered tea towel, a small painting, the sky is wide open....You do not have to make the item from scrach you can buy a pillowcase and alter it Or buy a tote  and alter it...Hope this is 100% clear now....LETS GET TO CRAFTING Yeppie I cant wait for partners!!!

I have to say I am a little SHOCKED that there has not been someone who has Marilyn Monroe,Beatles, Elvis Or the Harry Potter kid LOL...

I wanna do this! I'm a newbie swapper and this seems like a nice not-too-terrifying way to get my feet wet in the world of swapping. Just PMed over my form, hope it's all ok.

By the way, I'm in the UK and just managed to find Altoids in Morrisons if any of you UK swappers are having trouble finding a suitable tin. It's not a big Morrisons here either, so I would imagine most would have them.
