Continuing with my Altoid Tin Swaps, I thought I'd honor the Day of the Dead!


"The Day of the Dead (El Día de los Muertos in Spanish) is a holiday celebrated mainly in Mexico and by people of Mexican heritage (and others) living in the United States and Canada. The holiday focuses on gatherings of family and friends to pray for and remember friends and relatives who have died."

For this swap you will have (1) partner.

You will take an Altoid Tin and create a shrine (not a "fill-it-with-goodies-tin!) with the symbolism of "Dia de los Muertos".

If you are unfamiliar with this cultural observance, please Google or Flickr it!

Be colorful and creative! The shrine must be able to open and close. The entire Tin should be altered. The purpose of this altered tin is to be used as decor in someones' home.

Sorry Newbies, next time!

Ratings must be 4.9+ for this swap (or you may PM me with extenuating circumstances)!

Absolutely no swap drama, no-sends, or (1's) in the last 3 months at time of partner assignements.

NOTE- To participate, you must be a CONSISTENT & PROMPT rater. I believe in rating for swaps like this. They are substantial and take lots of time to create and an effort to send. I believe ratings are deserved for a job well done! If you don't plan to rate promptly, please do not participate!

Sorry international! I took a poll...and will keep it US Only. I apologize! I usually flip/flop back and forth when I host swaps. Some int'l and some U.S. only.

There are various reasons....but for now, I shall keep this one U.S. only.

Again, my apologies!
