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.

 Challenges:
Flourishes Timeless Tuesday:  Altered Christmas-All you need to do is create anything that isn’t a card for Christmas.
Mark's Finest Paper's: Speedy Fox and Friends Challenge: Use Red and Green- Used MFP Stamps

Whoopsi Daisy: Use Up your Stash.I used items from my stash of tins, brads, ribbons, and more.
