Hi guys.  I love craftster but this is my first post so I hope it goes ok.  My digital camera kinda sucks so the photo quality isnt the best, colours and such. 
   My sis and I decorate empty altoid tins with sculpty/femo (sculpty is easier to work with).  I like to use contrasting colours for the top of the tin and kinda mix the two colours together until you get a swirling effect.  Then a solid colour for the bottom.  Finally some personalized decorations, for example a zodiac sign, intials, or like my sis made for me the smashing pumpkins sign.
   We put them in the oven for 15-20 mins for the temp on the package.  Keep an eye on it so nothing goes wrong.
   Finally for the insides we line it with tissue paper using white school glue or podge - that collage stuff.
   K hope this works, thanks hope you enjoy (interested in individual swaps for this item send me a msg).
hope these are big enough to see... Embarrassed
