Altered Altoid Tins for Trinkets, Gift Cards or Money!

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.

After the giving occasion they can be tucked in a drawer with things like thumb tacks or rubber bands…or beach glass found on the shore.

Vintage sheet music is cut for the inside to give a finished look.

So don’t toss that Altoid tin.  You can give your little gift an upgrade with a few supplies and your imagination!
