Altoid Mint Tin Carvings: Tiny Inspiring Dioramas

Altoid Mint Tin Carvings

Some people chew a lot of gum, some people pop a lot of Tic Tacs, and I eat a lot of Altoids. It started a couple years ago when I tried one for the first time. It was so strong that it almost burned my throat, which made me want to try them more. Now I eat about a tin of those suckers each week. Hey, there are people out there who eat a lot more of those mints than me. This guy Michael eats three tins of Altoids every day. Dude, that’s a sickness. #justsayin

If you eat Altoids like me, you know they come in a really useful little tin that’s hard to get rid of once the mints are gone. I always keep my Altoid tins because I think someday I’ll come up with a creative use for them. They are just so cute, but what could they be used for exactly? Of course, they would be perfect for storing all kinds of little things like beads, rubber bands, hair clips and buttons, but there must be a better use for them than that, right?

Jim Doran has it all figured out, and I’m absolutely blown away by what he does with his Altoid tins. Let me back up for just a moment and say that I’m used to seeing creative carvings. We’ve featured some crazy looking tire carvings, some Star Wars crayon carvings and even some unexpected phone book carvings, but Altoid tin carvings? I never thought I’d see that. Jim creates little dioramas out of Altoid tins and they are spectacular. He is a self-taught artist who not only makes these little scenes out of Altoid tins; he does it in all kinds of tiny little tins. You can learn more about him at Jim Doran. On his website he writes, “I put ideas inside of other objects.” I like it. I like it a lot.
