Thank you very much for the tutorial! Unfortunately Altoid tins aren't for sale here in the Netherlands, but I found a nice substitute. In the past few weeks I have made quite a few of them, I think I'm addicted Wink

I'm glad you found a good substitute.

And I know what you mean about being addicted.  Cheesy

Thanks for the tute. I have a mini tin with the word small embossed on the top. I think I am going to try and incorporate it into my design.

Thank you Rackycoo. While I do not have those materials, I have various tins, and am trying one with fabric. Hot glue and trim will have to take care of the sides. My first attempt at anything is never perfect, but if I don't try, don't know if I can. I have a lot of ephemera, and that needs to be arted up! (yes, make up my own words).

I like the term "arted up".  Cheesy

I haven't covered any tins with fabric, but I've seen some, and they look great. Good luck with it, and definitely keep at it, if you enjoy doing it. It took me a while before I figured out what works best for me. My first tins aren't nearly as nice as my last ones!

This is an amazing site, thanks rackycoo. The images on cardstock, do you have to cut them out, or are they perforated? Love the alice in wonderland stuff.

You'll be trimming them out your own self.  Cheesy

I use either small detail scissors (I love Martha Stewart's), or a sharp exacto knife.

Thanks for the great tutorial. I am a newbie here and also at ATC's for all. Preparing to do mini altoid tin dolls over there which have the embossed lids. Any suggestions, fellow Craftsters?
