 Wink  Cheesy  Grin

Thanks to craftster.org and all of you craftsters out there for the inspiration!






I used a snap button kit and a nail to punch holes through the tin, screwed in a screw to function as the peg, and I'm temporarily using a sturdy hair rubber band as the slide/attach to belt part.

It works really well if you attach it to the belt first, THEN tie...so it's as tight as possible.
I put a couple of layers of scotch tape over the fastening edge of the tin so that it'd be harder to open and close, thus preventing the contents from spilling all over the place...if I decide to decorate the tin in a non-altoids fashion, then I'll probably wear it so the opening edge faces up.

Nifty idea. Does it sometimes spill out?

Thanks for the comments!

yep...haha...but not since I re-enforced the opening edge with tape (not to tape it closed, but just to make the snap more secure)
