10 Gifts in an Altoid Box Finished!

I know it’s been a few days since I posted about my 10 gifts in an altoid box project… you know how busy things can get around the holidays…but, even though I haven’t been posting, I’ve been working on it.

It took a bit of doing, but I finally have tiny beaded gifts that will all fit into an altoid box at the same time. Plus, I decorated the altoid box.

First, here are the 1o beaded gifts:

Starting at the upper left, beaded candle rings (candles not included in the box!), plant pot dangle, tiny photo frame, beaded bookmark, foldable Christmas ornament, beaded wire comb barrette, photo album with a beaded spine, striped magnet, a tube bead pin, and a purple wire wrapped push pin.

It wasn’t easy, but I got them all in! I think the next time I do this, I’ll make the photo frame a little flatter (use flatter beads). It took up the most room. The handmade comb barrette took up quite a bit of space, but it’s so pretty and unusual that it was worth it to me.

The covered altoid box looks innocent enough….

I had a lot of fun designing all these tiny gifts. Learned a lot too. Maybe I’ll write some tutorials on how to make them.
