Altoids Tin Pencil Case

A quick search on the interwebs shows that there are dozens of potential uses for an empty Altoids tin, mostly for survival kits or as a case for small electronics projects; but not a pencil case.  So, having sprayed mine with some leftover gold paint I assembled a few stationery items I just happened to have to hand...

Many just use the tins as they bought them, but I prefer to paint mine.

A couple of pencils, a Cult Pens pocket ballpoint, Muji sharpener and eraser, a couple of pins and paper clips and we're good to go.

The pictures of the Dumbbell Nebula and the Pleiades were pasted in to stop the contents from rattling too much.
