Every year my friend has a gag gift Christmas party.  I am always trying to think of gag gift ideas that are useful.  This year I am making use of Altoids tins.   Altoids metal containers are the best  to hold just about any small item.  No one throws these little gems away.  In-fact I think most people would love to have 100 of them.  I love all kinds of tin containers and wished I could get my hands on a lot more of them.

I wanted to make some party favors to share here on Instructables.  I made these adorable Altoids party favors!  They turned out real cute.  With the holidays coming up these would make just about anyone happy.  Cheap, quick,  and easy to make.  Hope you like them as much as I do!  

The Altoids kit contains:
  • Tea bag.
  • Coffee Creamer.
  • Sugar packet or a sugar cube.
  • Raisins. 
  • Mini tooth brush.
  • Home made Mint tooth powder.
  • Home made Mint or cinnamon tooth picks.
  • Spoon.
  • Dental floss.
  • Chocolate coin.

Step 1: Supplies:

Supplies needed:
  • Empty Altoids tin.
  • Wax paper.
  • Dental floss, 
  • Raisins.
  • Plastic spoon.
  • Sugar cube or packet.
  • Tea Bag.
  • Mint or cinnamon tooth picks.
  • Baking soda.
  • Mint oil.
  • Scotch tape.
  • Scissors.
  • Pen.
  • Rubber band.
  • Holiday stickers.
  • Small soft netting.   I got mine from the treasure candy (gold chocolate coins package, it is perfect.
  • Black construction paper to embellish the lid (optional ) 
Additional things would be a teaspoon and a small cup to mix the tooth paste in.  To make the mint tooth picks you will need to add some mint or cinnamon oil,  a small glass jar with lid, and a small sterile medicine jar or glass tube with lids to your list.


You are a busy girl this morning. I'm having a bad morning and I've enjoyed viewing all your hard work........ and I thought I was going to have another sleepless boring morning..... Thanks :)
Don't feel like the lone ranger! I have many sleepless nights! I have a friend named Author(ittis.) He likes to make me miserable! So I don't allow him to get to me, I spend all of my time here LOL! I have been a very bad girl! I have stayed up all night to work on these! I can't believe I am that much of an Instructables die hard fan! You made my day! I am soooo tired. I am getting ready to sleep for a few hours and start this some more later. Maybe I can make 2 or 3 more today LOL. Thanks so much for your sweet comment . . . . . . . . And remember to have a splendorous day! <br>Sunshiine
Well, then neither of us is actually that bad off. If this is a bad habbit ?..... it is safe to say we could be doing much worse! Sweet dreams ;)
Well, people say balance is very important to maintain good health. I must say that in this case, being a 24/7 Instructables fan does not follow the rules here in that I find Instructables has great therapeutic values in my case. It keeps me sane and active. I will sure miss it though when my injury heals enough for me to get back to household chores. Take care.<br>Sunshiine
If I'm not working or doing some volunteer bit, I'm usually here. My favorite thing is answers but there is alwayss something to do. I love it and you know what they say about idle hands.
Glad to meet someone who loves dis place as much as I do! Pleased to hear you do volunteer work. There is a lot of satisfaction in that as well. Not to mention those that benefit from your gift. Keep up the good work! <br>Sunshiine
Thanks! You get some rest yourself! I will be visiting your page to see if I have missed anything later on. That happens to me sometimes. Laterzzzz<br>Sunshiine
