I love Mint Tins. I was in Trader Joe's the other day and found this tin of green tea mints, and of course thought it would make a great Photo Frame keepsake box-It already had a little plastic window for the photo- then I added the photo of my cock-a-poo Romeo and put a magnet on the back. Who knows what else a person can make from mint tins?!

We have a pooch too, Charlie, who is a brittany spaniel, red and white, who we dearly love and who deserves a mint tin magnet on the refrigerator. In fact, so does our tiger cat, Teke, who's going to be 19 years old this month! ~Mary~ Posted: 7:57 pm on July 21st

Lately I'm trying to figure out what to do with the Eclipse tins...they are not flat like Altoids or Trader Joes...tall with a top opening. I have about a million of them. Any ideas? Posted: 11:35 pm on March 25th
