I altered another Altoids tin for a swap. I had joined what was called a Handmade Etsy Swap, where you bought at least one thing off of Etsy. I really wanted to alter a tin for my partner. When I found out that she really liked skulls and Day of the Dead, I was a little stumped. Skeletons and Halloween are not something I'm really that into. I have joined a couple Halloween swaps in the past, mainly to push my comfort zones and to make something. So, I dug out what little I had and it all sat on my floor for way too long.
I finally ended up with this:
I didn't take a picture of the back, but it's pretty boring, I just put some skull punches and a piece of paper saying handmade by me.
My partner sent me an email saying she had gotten her package yesterday and that I "made the coolest little casket thing". I thought that was pretty good praise.
