In researching other people's attempts at making Altoids, I discovered a surprising dearth of actual measurements to use!
Because I wasn't sure in the beginning how much oil : paste I would need, I used an eyedropper to parse out the oil slowly. These Altoids require few ingredients, but they might not be too easy to get a hold of, so I've provided some easy links: Gum Paste Powdered Confectioner's Sugar Flavored Oils Citric Acid (to add to flavors to make them sour) Bubble tea straw (or small round cutter)I used a liquid citric acid to add to my apple flavor, but that was a disaster!
If you decide to try making your own gum paste recipe to do these, than the gelatin will come into play.
Years ago, at a rubber stamp fair, one of the vendors was using the stamps and food coloring to stamp lollipops before they hardened.
You never did answer the question posed above about how close these match in consistency to the real deal. They are remarkably like the original - except the sour ones which stayed a bit soft because of using the liquid citric acid.
It's always handy to have a pack of mints with you, especially right after a cup of coffee or a particularly garlicky lunch.
So, today I offer one more idea that you can take and make or use as a springboard for your own ideas!
I always have a tin of mints in my purse and it never even occurred to me that these little gems could be duplicated at home until I saw it posted on Nila Rosa!
I figured the gum paste might prove challenging to find…but I found it in the cake decorating section of my local Walmart.
Start out by pulling off a piece of the gum paste about the size of an egg and start kneading it. Once you have all your mints cut out, toss them with a little more powdered sugar to keep them from sticking together and let dry for at least 48 hours. So I have to admit, I am not a big fan of Altoids Mints.  They are just too strong for me.  So I buy them or the container and then give them to my 7 yr old daughter because she loves them!
The tins truly are awesome and they can be used for so many things.  I was blown away when I started looking up items for this round-up. Here are just SOME of what I have found you can do with an Altoids Tin, and I am going to start off with my very own Business Card Holder. Some of these ideas where a little too high-tech for me.  But if you know how to pull them off I think they would be pretty cool!


And some of the uses were just a little strange and not sure what the need is for them, but I thought I would still include them.
I’ve seen quite a few uses for those cans but I think the ones you featured blow the others out of the water!
I have to add these to my someday pile… I have collected a few tins, because I know that I will eventually make something with them! These are all such adorable ideas… I just adore the mouse bed, the atlas and the mini suitcase!
Kate Pruitt came up with three essential Altoids tins survival kits; you can make them for whatever your life needs.
Kate Pruitt recommends using old-school Altoids tins with the printed logo for this project, rather than the tins that feature the logo embossed in relief on top. Once you've fully painted the tins, trace the stencil shape of your choice over a piece of contact paper and cut it out with an X-Acto knife. After everything's dry, fill your new kits with all of the stuff you'll need to make it through whatever life throws your way. Essential oil note-If you use Certified Pure Therapeautic Grade oils you will not have a problem. I haven’t found the super fat straws yet, so am going to try it with my lip moisturizer cap (like a Chapstick cap).
I mean, in a blind test, would I be able to tell which was an Altoid and which was homemade? I used the gum paste powder and the proportions here (started with good ol' peppermint). Whether you're going on a date, to the dentist, or to an interview, bad breath is no good.If you're a fan of "curiously strong mints," all you need is a few basic ingredients, some empty tins and a straw to make your own Altoids at home. You can make as many different colors and flavors as you want, and there's no shortage of choices in oils. Just boil the gelatin and lemon juice in water, add the glucose, then mix with the powdered sugar in an electric mixer or by hand. When you see how EASY it is you will most likely be asking the same question I OFTEN do…why didn’t *I* think of that!? I think my favorites are the cute sewing kit and the little travel boxes – the kids would love those!
Pruitt sprays the clean tins inside and out with two coats of flat white primer and allows the primer to dry between each application.


For her three survival kits, Pruitt used an extracted tooth for her dental kit, a red cross for her first aid kit and a button silhouette for her sewing kit.
I will not mention specific oils out of respect-But we love On Guard, Peppermint, Wild Orange, Lemon, and to a very large batch winter green. I will have to make my own veggie dyes because of reactions to petroleum in artificial color dyes. I make gum paste flowers for cakes and they are definitely NOT edible as the gum paste dries to a rock hard consistency. Took a good two weeks to dry out properly (GA humidity?), was INTENSELY strong, just the way we like them.
And, as Jill over on One Good Thing points out, you can make them in any flavor you want, not just mint. I post something and all of YOU comment on it and add to it and get each other thinking and it’s like a brilliant chain reaction! Here, you can either opt to keep the tins white -- which gives the dental and first aid survival kits a decidedly medicinal look -- or apply any other color of spray paint.
I noticed that on the Altoids tin, their ingredients are sugar, gum Arabic, artificial flavors, gelatin, and dye.
Enough so that unless friends ask me (or I get lazy and just roll little balls of the things since I suck on them anyway) they don't always know the difference. If you choose to paint the tins further, follow the steps used for the primer application, including the drying time. So some other options are coming soon (thinking LLP blend for my sons allergies, and some with DigestZen too!) I use the small end of a funnel to punch them out, they just pile up inside the funnel then I dump them on a plate. Do you have an opinion on the use of gelatin or doesn't it make a significant difference? I also ended up using a just a few drops of regular cooking oil to help soften up the gum paste and help mix in the coloring and flavoring better.
Come to think of it…you could even use a pizza cutter or a knife and make them square-shaped. I’m on an iPad and notice things take longer to load with all of these pop-ups and ads.
