Introduction: Double Sided Altoid Wallet

I took the lid off of one altoid tin, and attached it to the back of another. This lets me separately carry one or two cards, eg. a credit card and my ID, on the back of the tin. That way I don't have to dig through the wallet all the time.

Hey, how did you cut the tin to put the second top?

I used dremmel for the longer cuts, then used a really sharp knife VERY GENTLY to cut the smaller cuts perpendicular to the long ones. If you hold the knife blade from the blunt side, close to the tip, and press it down very carefully, it works. Mark everything out with a fine sharpie first. You want the cuts to align with the lid perfectly.

wouldnt it be kind of bulky in your pocket?

No more than any other Altoid can. The second lid only adds maybe 2mm to the thickness.
