What Can you Make out of an Altoids Tin?

Altoids
 
So I have to admit, I am not a big fan of Altoids Mints.  They are just too strong for me.  So I buy them or the container and then give them to my 7 yr old daughter because she loves them! (Yes, I know I am a wuss but I am OK with that)
 
The tins truly are amazing and they can be used for so many things.  I was blown away when I started looking up items for this round-up.
 
Here are just SOME of what I have found you can do with an Altoids Tin, and I am going to start off with my very own Business Card Holder.

Some of these ideas where a little too high-tech for me.  But if you know how to pull them off I think they would be pretty cool!

And some of the uses were just a little strange and not real sure what the need is for them but I thought I would still include them.

So why do you save the Altoids Tins and what do you use them for?

    My mom used to have Altoids with her all the time when I was little. Brings back fond memories! This makes me want to start buying them myself. So many great ideas!

    Wow! Who knew there were so many things to make with a old Altoid container. I like the sewing kit and the business card holder. Thanks for putting together this fun round up.

    Some of these are genius!! I love the little mouse bed, I don’t eat altoids but my mom does, I’m going to have to get her to save me some tins!

    I always swipe my mom’s Altiod tins before they hit the trash. Most of them are just being hoarded until I find a project to do with them. I never thought to use one as a business card holder, I think they would work good for all of those stupid loyalty cards taking up space in my wallet too.
    This is such a great roundup! Thank you for sharing.
