I always have a couple packs of gum in my purse, mostly half empty, or maybe just one piece left in them.  Very annoying.  So I altered an altoids tin to keep all of my gum in.  I'm not too concerned with keeping the flavors separate, I only buy flavors I like, and they don't hang around in the tin long enough to all start tasting alike.

  I received the music from one of my tip-in swap partners and wanted to use it with this bird image. 

I may rip the top paper off of the inside of the tin.  I like it, but I think I might like it better gone.

 I slipped in a little bit of the music on the inside edge.  I wanted it to be very unobtrusive,and purposefully unaligned since I like things very plain and simple.  Although now that I look at it I think I should have maybe used a deckle edge?

This is such a great idea, and so cute! I have at least 3 half empty packs of gum in my purse right now.

I love that! I have, like, four altoid tins hanging around my room because I've been trying to figure out how I can use them. You've inspired me!

I also love the bird with music. It reminds me of Sweeney Todd.
"Green finch and linnet bird, nightingale, blackbird, how is it you SINGGGGGG?"

Haha, I love that movie.  Grin
