Tutorial to Share: Making an Altoid's Tin Book

I collect craft tutorials on my pinterest page and like to share them here from time to time. Here is a particularly nice one by Laura Carson on her Gingersnap Creations blog. Laura has created a wonderfully detailed explanation for making a charming altered book with an altoid tin. If you're like me (and my husband) you always a supply of those great little tins lying around! They're too cute and useful to through away, but you need a creative way to alter them.
Laura's supply list includes ephemera and vintage images ... you know where to find those! (brazen hint:  This project could easily be adapted to other altered tin ideas... a box or any kind of container rather than a book, a tiny shrine, etc.  Here's the link to the original tutorial:
