This is an altoid tin I altered for my partner in the halloween altoid tin swap round 2. It was my first altered altoid tin so I'm kinda proud. Plus my partner craftypuppymom really liked it. 

First I drilled a hole in the side of the tin so I could put a brad in there for decoration/opening.Then I put like 3 different ribbons on the side of the tin top and bottom to hide the silver of the tin. Black lacey ribbon on top and a wide black ribbon on bottom with a black spider web ribbon on top of it. Then cut out my black glittery paper to fit on the top and bottom of the tin. For the top I glued an orange ribbon with witches in the middle and 2 lacey black ribbons on each side of it. Glued that down on the top and the bottom down plain. Orange glitter glue to finish off the edges of the top and bottom. Now to the inside.. cut out the paper to fit, glued it down. Cut the star ribbon to fit, glued it in, which covered the back of the brad. I also put the black lacey ribbon on the side with the witchy spider but then the tin wouldn't close so I had to take it out lol! Learning experience. The witch hat and little star was in the scrapbooking section. Finish off with glitter glue in the seams and it's all done!   On to the pictures..

Opening the tin..

Here's everything I sent.. Tin, Spooky tree of life necklace (which you can see here https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=323671.msg3735525#msg3735525), Boo magnet and pumpkin magnet, Stitch markers, Painted wicked sign, Little pumpkin pouch to put everything in.

And a close up of everything in the tin and my extra..

This was a really fun swap.. I might be addicted to altoid tin swaps now!  Grin
