DETAILS OF SWAP:
Based on your partners list of favourite themes, you will work on altering a mini tin and send it off to your partner (and why yes, youll receive an awesome mini altered tin in return)!  Partners will be matched to the best of my ability (no favouritism here!) Cheesy
Now, lets talk about the size of the mini tin.  We will use the dimensions of a mini altoid tin as a guide, i.e. your mini tin should measure approximately 1.5 by 2.25.  Feel free to use your creativity and whatever method you like to make the mini altered tin fabulous!  Do your best work Cheesy  Looking for inspiration?  There are numerous examples (Pinterest is a good resource for eye candy!) of what may be done with altoid tins in general, and yes, there are even examples of altered mini tins to be found online.  Ah, the possibilities!  

Other housekeeping details and what-nots
1.  I reserve the right to refuse anyone who has a history of multiple instances of poor communication and/or late sending.
2.  You need to make at least one post in this thread (per Craftster swap requirements).
3.  Check the swap thread regularly.  Feel free to talk about what youre doing with your tin, post teaser pictures of your work-in-progress, ask for ideas, etc.  Anything that relates to altered tins and crafting for your partner is good talk.
4.  Communication is essential!  If youre having issues with the swap, or if youre sending late (for whatever reasons), you must contact the organizer.  Poor communication will be noted in your feedback Sad

Yep, you'll have to have nimble fingers and gobs of patience Wink

Having said that, to put things in perspective...the mini altoid tin size of 1.5" by 2.25" is a smidge bigger than the average matchbox size of 1.5″ x 2″ Grin

That is funny - ever since you posted about it being slightly smaller than a matchbox, I have been coming up with various ideas of what I could do... but when I was thinking about it as a tin, I had trouble... funny, hmmm?

I presume this is just for the altered tin and that it could be taken apart for the altering if necessary?  It doesn't have to be functional or filled?  Or it can be if the craftster wants?
