How to make Altoid Tin Traveling Altars

One Project me and  Vadora love to do is   Building Altars together
as We love to travel and we want to take a bit of our Altars with us on the Road

So today I will Show you and Give you Ideas how to make your own Traveling Altar
Pagans and Wiccans honor  Different Deities so make one that best fits you and your Deity

What you want to do is come up with an idea of  what you want your  Tin Altar to look like

Yes They do Sell Blank Altoid Tins  you find them in craft stores  usually 10 pack for 5 bucks

Some people have asked me that the Altoid tins  have an Embossed   Lettering
This is Simple to Fix

What you need is  Blank Index Cards  This is to Cover up the Embossed Lettering
on the inside and out
That is just an Example to give you an idea 

Once you Figure out what Style and Theme of a Traveling Altar you are going for
you will need 

Altoid Tins
Mod Podge
For the People who do not know what Mod Podge is
its Decoupage Glue   for Crafts  
Decorations  such as  Crystals , Glassbeads , Plastic Beads , Glitter, Paint
Gemstones , Sand , Ribbon , 

Mini Tools make them out of Salt Dough and paint them
Goddess / God Symbols
Voodoo Symbols 
Sigil Symbols 
I can not Tell you how to Decorate an Altar for you
All I can do is Share some Tin Altars to Inspire you to make one that best suits you

  If you Buy the Blank Altoid Tins you can Emboss the Tins with a Stamp  like this one

Steampunk version
