Altoids mints come in metal tins. When mints are gone use tins for storage of small items. Make label for the end of tin. Store across the front end of desk drawer. Good idea for office or teachers. Great idea when I become a teacher!
Garden in an Altoid tin -- It makes me think of C. Lewis's experience with his brother Warnie's miniature garden in a biscuit tin. "Surprised by Joy" by C. Lewis Idea for fairy house competition for the Michigan renn faire.
Recycle Altoid tin and keep earphones in it! Love it for my purse. ~ just sprayed the lid of a gift card tins white. Plan on decorating w/ sharpies, stickers etc as needed. Using a hairband to keep closed in my purse.
