Altered Altoid tin

The holidays kept me busy but I'm ready to get back to crafting, here is my first project of the year: an altered Altoid tin. Well, its not really Altoid, but close. It is a purchased tin, all silver, covered with SU Ginger Blossom paper. The inside nicely holds a tube of lipstick and a pack of gum. Very durable for my purse. The mirror inside is from a mirror sheet, which you can buy at any craft store. Its thin, so you can cut it on a rotary cutter. I stamped on it with white Stazon ink, almost has an etched look. I made a bunch of these for a 3D swap on SCS, hope my fellow swappers like theirs!
