Odd or interesting mint tins

Post by Dukana » Thu Jul 27, 2017 2:47 am

Anyone doing a build using something besides the standard altoids tin? Maybe one of the blanks from adafruit with a custom paint job? What are some other cool tin ideas?

i actually like this alot.... (nice find)

only concern is if its the same size,
theres less mints in the tin than altoids, but thats nothing to go by, walkers put less crisps/chips in the same size bags....

worst case scenario, can always try to print something out similar

I see delivery being a problem. that seller @veteranGamer linked doesn't have the rates for international listed. $5 for a tin of mints and probably more in delivery charges is a bit steep TBH...
