    Altoids

    So I like Altoids and I buy them by the 12 pack to keep in my car as a snack.

    Anywhooo over the last year I have ended up with a ton of empty altoid tins. They are too cool to toss away.

    I want some suggestions on what to do with them, make out of them, used them for. And don't bother with the stuff you can find by googling. I checked out most of them and they are lame. Like
    • A box for pills
    • A mini first aid kit
    • a mini survival kit



    you can check this page out and dont bother with anything on it

    Give me some cool ideas.

    My Uncle Ray had altoids, but had them surgically removed.

    A few years back I came across a way to use an Altoids tin to make an mp3 player.
    Enter the Church and wash away your sins. For here there is a hospital and not a court of law. Do not be ashamed to enter the Church; be ashamed when you sin, but not when you repent. St. John Chrysostom

    I recommend you do not try too hard and ...research as little as possible. Such weighty things give me a headache. - Shunyadragon, Baha'i apologist

    I would use them to keep booty in.













    In my craft room, that is really what I would use them for. They would be perfect for putting little flowers or pearls or gems, etc. in.

    Please do not send them to me, I can get my own!

    Fill them with pennies and give them to the kids at church.

    Or, if you're having a mission offering, give the empty boxes to the kids at Church, and have them fill them with coins and turn them in (a few weeks later) for the mission offering!
