The Mint that Keeps on Giving: Altoid Tin Ideas 1. Purse-sized first aid kit...example here, 2. Tooth tin for the tooth fairy 3. Purse-sized sewing kit 4. Earphone container (I love this because now my earphones are never tangled up) 5. Change purse 6. Crayon container 7. Carry your sweetner of choice 8. Carry your pins (hair pins, safety pins, etc.) 9. Decorate them for party favors (filled with candy or lipgloss, etc) 10. Emergency candles or decorative (click here for tutorial) 11. Glue some strong magnets to the back and it can hold other magnets on your fridge, or twisty ties (it's those depression girls again that save the twisty ties) 12. Traveling intimacy kit (condoms, chocolates, wipes, etc.) 13. You can create a memory game that fits in the tin (using pictures of your family might be fun). 14. I've used them to hold jewelry when I'm traveling. 15. I've given them to the kids at the beach and say that if it can't fit in there, they can't bring it home. 16. Gift boxes for small presents. 17. Nice snack container for cheerios, etc. 18. When you're in another country it keeps your toilet paper dry and intact as you tour around. 19. Fill it with quarters and give it as a gift to the graduate who is off to college and staying at the dorms...laundry money. 20. Bragbook or Memorybook - see tutorial below 21. Of course you can always use it to hold mints and candy and stuff...
