Introduction: Magnetic Altoids Stash
Seems like these altoids tins have infinite uses!
Here we are going to convert a tin into a stash to hang from any metal surface!
This is going to be useful for those who have a bunch of small parts sitting around on your workbench, the easiest little organizer you can make.
Another use for this is for hiding valuables around your house, place valuables inside the tin, and attach it to a metal surface out of sight.
Like leaving a spare key outside your home behind the A/C Unit
Or hanging up your brand new altoids clock
Post! I'd like to know what kind of uses you'd have for this!

Step 1: Materials
Here is the list of materials:
1. Altoids Tin
The magnets I used came from ID badges from my old job that I had laying around.
Step 2: Assemble
Place the magnets inside the bottom of the tin
I put them at opposite ends, you can add more magnets if you want to hold heavier items.
Step 3: Fill 'er Up!
This is the part where you get creative and put your belongings inside.
Step 4: Attach to Metal Surface
Put your lid on nice and tight.
And slap it onto a metal surface and admire all the hardwork that went into this baby.
The only limit is the size of your items you want to hide, and the strength of your magnets.
