I have been interested in doing a covered Altoid tin. Problem is I hate Altoids. But my boss eats them like crazy. So day before yesterday I ask him if he could save me one so I could do a project. He said he had several saved and would bring them to me.
Imagine my surprise when I arrived at work yesterday morning and there was a canvas bag filled with Altoid tins. About 100 or more.
What in God's green earth am I going to do with 100 Altoid tins? He was pleased as punch with himself that he had brought them so I managed a smile (and not a hearty laugh) and said thank you.
I told my EGA group about it last night and we are going to do a project next year with them. There are only 30 of us in the group.
So that leaves me with an extra 70 or more Altoid tins...
Stay tuned to see what marvelous ideas I try to come up with to use these.
