Altered altoid tin

Today I would like to share this altered altoid tin with you. I started it this morning, but in order to finish it I will need a metal punch. Off to the Hardware store I go.Wish me luck.
Thank you so much for stopping by and for all your lovely comments. At the moment I'm running behind with visiting  your lovely blogs and hope to catch up tonight.
Have a great day and a wonderful weekend my dear friends.

Hugs & love,

Brilliant idea - again Marie! - love how it turned out! Wouldn't it be fun to keep a small rolled-up love letter inside? Now all you need is a secret Valentine who will write you such a letter, LOL! Hugs, Ira

What a unique way to use the small altoids tin. I've altered the larger ones, but you really inspire me to use the small ones, too!

This is really pretty. I had no idea that Altoids came in a small bottle. I'll have to look for them.

Hugs,
Susan

Nobody can transform an ordinary, usually thrown away, item like you can! I'm going to start sucking on altoids and send you the tins!
