Altered Altoid Tins For Gift Giving

From the blogger: "I had so much fun altering these Altoid tins for gift giving. They are the perfect size for gift cards or money or a little piece of jewelry tucked inside. Since they are decorated they make a cute little trinket box after the gift is received. The little Altoid tins are decorated with scraps of trim and metal charms. Each one is whimsical and can be tailored with the occasion in mind. You can make each altered Altoid Tin truly OOAK [one of a kind]."
