Altoids Tiny Tin IPod Shuffle Case

Intro: Altoids Tiny Tin IPod Shuffle Case

I've seen a lot of altoids iPod cases on this site but none for the shuffle which is less common but lots of people still have it. So heres my plan for a shuffle case using an altoids tiny tin which are sort of hard to find but are useful

Step 1: Cut the Tin

Open the tin and make a square shaped hole on the side of the tin as shown. You can cut it with a dremel but I used a pair of wire cutters so it came out kind of sloppy.

Step 2: Your'e Done!

Now just put your shuffle in and thread the headphone cord out of the hole as shown. Now close it up and continue on your mery way!

    Do you think Altoids are available in the Philippines?

    I haven't tried this, but I would think that the edge of this could damage your wires. If the case shifted in your pocket to make the wire pull against it I think it could cut the wire. I think cutting flaps into the edge and bending them backwards would round out the hole and also make the opening in the case smoother.

    Nice, I would add some padding inside of the case. Just in case you drop it.
