My brother's birthday is coming and I always include a little stitchy gift as part of his present. He said he thought I had made just about everything there was to make for him. But he hadn't seen the covered Altoid tins. So I stitched up this one with a little dragon freebie that you can get here to use as a flash drive caddy. I used DMC color variations 4030 on tea-dyed Monaco over-one. I forgot to put batting between the stitching and the lid, but since my brother has nothing to compare this to, I think it will be fine. Plus I'll add the drive and a gift card to his favorite restaurant so it should make for a nice birthday package.
Unfortunately, the Altoid tins are just a touch too small to hold a gift card, credit card or business card, so the gift card will have to remain outside of the tin. It's a shame since the tin could really have more uses if it was just a tad larger.
