It took some doing, but I got 10 tiny beaded, all handmade gifts into a decorated altoid box. Here's a few photos:

Starting at the upper left, beaded candle rings (candles not included in the box!), plant pot dangle, tiny photo frame, beaded bookmark, foldable Christmas ornament, beaded wire comb barrette, photo album with a beaded spine, striped magnet, a tube bead pin, and a purple wire wrapped push pin.

It wasnt easy, but I got them all in! I think the next time I do this, Ill make the photo frame a little flatter (use flatter beads). It took up the most room. The handmade comb barrette took up quite a bit of space, but its so pretty and unusual that it was worth it to me:

The covered altoid box looks innocent enough.


I enjoy making my own beads from recycled materials. Also, designing with wire.

I love giving little gifts in Altoid tins, but I don't think I've ever fit 10 in one box, so way to go! I'm sure the recipient will love all her beaded goodies.

Check out my Etsy shop. Scary Toys and Halloween for everyone!

Wow, I can't believe you fit it all inside. What a great gift

Funny, I don't remember being absentminded...

I need a skein (two would be great) of Knit Picks Gloss Bare sock weight to finish a shawl.
