I just tried this for the first time and it was so much fun! The ink pad thing is so brilliant...such a small touch that makes such a lovely big difference. Thanks so much for posting this!

Beautiful!!  I have sooo many of those tins- LOVE to alter them.  (I was very disappointed when they decided to make the tins dimensional....  Tongue

Thanks so much for the tute- even tho I've made many, it's nice to read someone else's tricks- sometimes thats where I've messed up in the past! 

Yeah the dimensional ones stink but I think they're still usable. Maybe 'Altoids' can be covered with some kind of dimensional embellishment.. I'll have to play around and see.

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

There have been a lot of discussion and great ideas given for dealing with the embossed tins on the Wicked Circus Altered Altoid Tins Swap thread!  http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=374624.0

Thanks for the tute, rackycoo - lots of great tips. I will try one this weekend.

And Trader Joe's has flat mint tins - Sugarfree mints called "Myntz". Also, at the Container Store (and sometimes in the Dollar Store), you can buy plain, brushed metal tins. I don't know if they're hinged.

And I have a zillion* tins, just PM me if you want/need some.



*Well, not a zillion but 50+ and I buy/eat these mints so I have a steady supply available.
