Hello again, Craftster! Posting a new miniature diorama that was made with with an altoid tin. This was made for a personal swap with noooitaremybirthday and since she has received the tin, it's time to share with everyone else!  Cheesy

Front and back.

And some close ups of the shelf and the secret hidden starts glued to the inside of the roof.
I hope nooo found them!

When I bought the tin it was supposed to be bigger! Those things are super tiny - I spent a whole evening holding the tin and wondering if it would be too small.

Thanks, Limeriot - the tin was received super well!  Cheesy

Awesome job, very inspiring.  I've been wanting to do an altered tin.  The detail you cram into such a small space is amazing!

Thanks, everyone! The buttons were a last bit addition (glad they worked out!) - and I still wanted to out something on the front of the roof. None of my bits and bobs seemed appropriate though.  Tongue
