This set of printable files in pdf format (acrobat reader) will print out the top, back, two interior faces and sides for a miniature scene or shrine in a mint tin. The interior scene for this tin is shown above, a shot of First Snow. The tin can house an outdoor scene of miniatures, or it can be used for a survival tin, based on the instructions from Field and Stream. There is also a set of instructions for a good 72 hour survival kit in a tin from survival.com. Instructables have instructions for making a tin into an emergency candle.
