I know I’ve written before of the fun that can be had with an Altoids tin, but we have made a change to it so I wanted to post it again. This is a fun project to make for any super-special little girls under five in your life, this one I made for my niece’s birthday.
It is nice, too, that the whole thing won’t cost you more than a $2 package of Altoids (try Marks & Spencer’s “Curiously Strong Mints” or Trader Joe’s Gingermints for a change) and some fabric scraps.
