Gifts from Altoid Tins

 I have some Christmas ideas to make with Altoid tins. I have saved several of these tins over the year. I decorated the top and covered the bottom of the tins and attached ribbons around tin with scor-tape. Th trick to making these quickly is to use adhesive card stock for the top and bottom. I used a textured adhesive CS from DCWV which has an assortment of colors. I will use the tins as gifts with candy, money and/or gift cards enclosed inside with a note.
