Hi This indestructable is about how to make a metal box the same size (or what ever size you want) of the Altoids tin. DO YOU KNOW WHAT THIS MEANS????
This means you can make your own tins..... WHATEVER SIZE YOU WANT!!!!!!!!!!!
Heres how.

MATERIALS:
2 EMPTY ALUMINUM CANS
SHARP SCISSORS
PENCIL
STAPLER OR SMALL NUTS AND BOLTS OR SODDER GUN.

Step 1: The basics.

A basic Altoids tin is a box and a lid. This is the same as paper craft only instead of paper we are using aluminum.
First you will need to to cut of the tops and bottoms of the 2 cans.
After that flatten the can into a sheet.
This is what they should look like.
What are altoids?<br>And this instructable needs better lighting.
Nothing like an altoids tin...
Why not try to fix misspelled words, don't rely on the spell check. You haven't fixed the words that someone has picked up on. Sodder is wrong, it should be solder. There's a good amount of misspelled words, correcting them can make a huge difference, and your pictures, too. Which is why my ibles are so bad. lol.
The folding is kind of nice, but it doesn't look much like an Altoids tin in the end. No hinge? L
um did you look at the last sentence of step #7?
Yes, thanks! (thought I'd replied to this, but it seems not) L
The nice curled edges either...
sodder? finnishing? instructables has a spell checker so i would advise that you use it to make your instructable more presentable!!!
I'm using Google Chrome and it has spell check.
me to, i'm using Google chrome, and it does use a free spell check.
well you didn't use it....
Yes I did, I always do.
You ALWAYS do? That's a little sad...
Spell checkers are a horrible way to do anything. And then there is always the fact that you can add words. My spellchecker in firefox actually recognizes the word "sneffulopagus" as a real word. I am sure you have seen this poem regarding; Eye halve a spelling chequer It came with my pea sea It plainly marques four my revue Miss steaks eye kin knot sea. Eye strike a key and type a word And weight four it two say Weather eye am wrong oar write It shows me strait a weigh. As soon as a mist ache is maid It nose bee fore two long And eye can put the error rite Its rare lea ever wrong. Eye have run this poem threw it I am shore your pleased two no Its letter perfect awl the weigh My chequer tolled me sew.
I was laughing for ages after eye red your poem<br />
&quot;eye red&quot; &nbsp;lol &nbsp; :D&nbsp;
