GALLERY!!



Let's make decorative tins! I'm guessing most people would like to use an Altoids tin, but if you have a similar sized tin that will work better, that's fair game too. Pop the lid off and use the open tin as a shadowbox of sorts, in one of the themes your partner requests. All you're sending is one tin, and you have plenty of time (3 weeks! So generous!), so please take your time and make something so awesome that you secretly wish you could keep for yourself. There are tons of examples of tins around Craftster. Click here for lots of examples. This swap is limited to 24 people, so sign up now if you're interested. Don't be late to the tin party!

*Make sure you post a comment in the signup thread, so you don't miss any important announcements!*

Fair warning: if you have a history of several very late sends or poor communication, I may ask you to sit this swap out. If this is the case with you, please pm me before applying to join, and we'll discuss your situation.
