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.

Picture of 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.

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...
