Introduction: The Double Sided Modular Altoids Survival Tin

There are Tons of Altoids Survival tins on the Internet but; Mine is Double the Space and is FULLY Customizable ( I will add Velcro later and show you how to add add ons! )

Materials Needed:
2 Altoids Tins
Double Sided Sticky foam
Duck Tape
Scissors

Time to Assemble:
15 Minutes

Step 1: Set Up and Asembly

Place Tins upside down, I have them so the tin flaps will open from the same side. ( Pic 3 )

Press sticky tape on one side of a tin leaving one side of the tape with paper still attached so you wont get dirt or stuff on the foam. Overhang tape a little over edges of tins then trim off with a exacto knife or scissors.
( Pics 4&5)

Remove paper from sticky foam and press tins together. ( Pic 6 )

Line up Duct tape and score a line ( or use a ruler..LOL ) and tear at scoring then wrap tape around the tins a few times. ( Pic 7 )

Step 2: Final Assembly

I Placed the sticky foam inside and put a few demo items inside tins and also cut a piece of the tape to hold the small items it.

Well; Thats it, I will post MORE pictures as this project is just getting started, it will have Velcro ALL around it and you will see more to come!!!

Enjoy

    NICE JOB. LOOKS SIMPLE ENOUGH FOR ME TO DO. THANKS

    what's up this ALL CAPS?

    I am not sure who or what you are referring to.

    who:
    1inspirt
    what:
    his usage of all caps.
    sorry for the confusion, eyewander.

    Y Thanks, I like simplified too.

    Would not use the tape inside like that. All too soon the adhesive will transfer to the pins making them a sticky mess.
    Perhaps velcro strips would do same job without turning pins gooey.

    Yes and Thank You, The Tape was for Demo purposes. I probably will use your idea and Magnetic tape also.

    What if you riveted the 2 together? You could start out just like shown and once they are the way you want them drill some holes in it (maybe 1 in each corner and one in the middle of each long side) and then use a hand riveter. Won't be sealed completely unless you calk between them or use something else before riveting but will be good for loose stuff
