This was inspired by Truemirrors Altoids Tin mini watercolor paintbox. I wanted a very small travel watercolor kit to go with my moleskine pad.

Step 1: Paintbox in Altoids Small Tin

Picture of Paintbox in Altoids Small Tin
Following Truemirrors directions, I made an Altoids small tin into a paint box. I could only fit 6 colors. There is room in the larger tin for a small tube, so that gives me 7 colors.

Step 2: All together

Here is the tin all together. It contains:
Paint
Paintbrush
Extra tube of paint
Pencil w/eraser
Pencil Sharpener
Water in a Japanese bento box container for sauce
Paper towel on the bottom.

ahh! that was just the tweak I needed! I need to make 10 mini-paint kits that are portablle for my cub scouts to take on our hike. I liked the idea of altiods tins, but the larger ones put me over my budget. The small ones will work perfectly! The way you did these is just perfect. Thanks!
