Kate's Travel Candle

What is it about Altoids tins? Has there been another bit of packaging that has been so repurposed in the history of crafting? As ubiquitous as they are, it's always great to see a fresh idea pop up for our favorite little metal box, and Kate's got one. I love this simple travel candle she's worked up. Portable atmosphere. Nice. from design sponge
