Step 2: Making the Cards

Picture of Making the Cards

First, you will need to cut your white paper into rectangles that are 3x2 inches. I recommend you make more than 20. It will make the game more fun and exciting. Label the cards in crayon or markers "Card #1", "Card #2", "Card #3", etc. Once you are done with labeling the cards, draw pictures of simple things you can find around your house like pencils, toys, etc. If you are making this for the car, then put objects like types of cars or buildings. Then label the items in small letters underneath the drawing.

Step 3: Part 1 the Outside of the Tin

This is Part 1 The Outside Of The Tin. I will be showing you how to do the bottom part of the tin. First, you need to cut two pieces of your colorful paper. They both should be around 5.5x5.5 inches. Place one of the papers on your table and place the Altoids Tin on top. Put a strip of double sided tape on one of the long sides. Fold the tape so it sticks only to the silver part of the tin. Cut off the end of the paper shown in the fifth and sixth pictures. Once you do that, you need to put double sided tape on both of the short sides. Fold both sides so that only the silver part of the tin is covered. Trim the sides shown in picture 10. Put double sided tape on the last side and fold just on the silver part of the tin. Trim the paper as in picture 12. You will use the other paper in Part 2 The Outside Of The Tin.

Step 4: Part 2 the Outside of the Tin

Now, we will be doing the top of the tin. You will need the piece of paper from Part 1. First, you need to place the paper on the top of the tin. Tape one of side of paper to one of the long sides with double sided tape. Then cut as shown in picture 4. Do the same for the next 3 sides.

Step 5: The Inside of the Tin

Yay! You have completed the outside! Now onto the inside! First, place a piece of colored paper on the tin as shown in picture 2. Trace with a marker or a crayon the shape of the tin. Cut the tracing that you made and put that aside. Take another piece of paper of a different color and do the same. Once you have completed that, put double sided tape on one side of both pieces and tape them as shown in picture 1.

Step 6: Put the Cards In
