I recently particpated in the Wicked Vice altered Altoid tin swap, and my partner was grasshopper, who claims one of her biggest vices is napping.  (Naps are the highlight of my day.) So here's the tin that I came up with for her!

The front -- shhh!


And opened up... someone is napping in her mossy bed. On the wall you can see a few of her favorite treasures, including an alarm clock, a portrait of a beloved family member and a Dr. Pepper for later when she needs a caffiene boost. Grin


And a peek under the blanket -- but can't leave it off too long, or she'll get a chill! And of course she needs an eye mask to keep the light out of her eyes.  Roll Eyes


This was a great swap, and I was so lucky to have grasshopper as a swap partner!   Cheesy

Thanks for looking!

You did such a great job with this! I love the theme and the little "shhhh" sign on the front. So clever!

Thank you! Grin This was really fun to work on. I loved imagining a little grasshopper living in an Altoid tin!
