For mine I etched my name on to it using the etching instructable. You can spray paint it, or do anything you want to decorate it. Leave a small space for money hole (where yellow box is).

Step 3: Cut Hole

Mark where you want the hole to be with a marker. Then take your knife and cut it out CAREFULLY!! You're done. Pat yourself on the back.

This should really be titled, "Take the paint off of an Altoids tin" Still, I didn't know that etchant could be used for this purpose. This is a great way for someone to make a custom-looking case for electronics projects.
