Another altereted altoid tin

I am sure alot of you have seen this Altered Altoid tin that I made into a photo album.
This is a different idea on the same concept.



A just in case box.

Inside it has...

Mint gum
scratch paper
a small marker
$1 in quarters
Aspirin
Sewing kit
Bobby pin
Elastic
A mini pad
A list with a spot for emergency contact, hubby's work, kids school, work, poison control, local police

I can think of a point when I have need any of these when I am out and about and don't have it. It is the perfect size to keep in a purse, glove box or desk.

I glued paper on first, attached my letters and small embellishments with more glue. Then I added a thin layer of modge podge over the top.

These are for a swap I am in, but this would be a great Christmas gift for a teacher, co worker or girlfriend.

They orginally were suppose to be in one of these blank band aid tins,


but those are no where to be found!

So start saving those Altoid tins!
