Altered Altoid Mini Album Tin

I decided to make a Christmas mini album from a Altoid tin and it was so much fun to put it together.


You've seen these before, right?


Here it is now...


I altered the inside top and bottom.


Inside the box, the first page


The great thing about making a mini album is that it doesn't cost very much to put this together.

And you can make it as complicated as you want it to be.


I've got several more tins to alter for Christmas.


And tomorrow I'm off from work so I'll be busy finishing up decorating the house for Christmas and making another Altoid tin mini album.

How cute - great job. I have several of the tins that I saved to decorate for gift cards or money gifts , but never got them done.

I love these and I have an Altoid tin that will be empty soon {well, today, if I eat all the mints}! Can I ask what you used as the "base" for the album itself?

Erin said...

What a great idea! I love it! :)

Gracious goodness! That's about the cutest thing!!!!! You made it look easy and it turned out looking like something you bought! Wonderful~
When you finish decorating your house please link a post of all those holiday pics to All Things Merry & Brite next Wednesday, we're having a Christmas Open House! You can also link up anything else you've got up your sleeve!
