This was a chart from cross stitch gold, I didn't know what to stitch my best friend for Christmas, well what to make this year. I always make him a gift. Its tradition. it is getting harder and harder to come up with something

each year

any ways this chart fell into my lap last minute and fit perfectly on an Altoid tin, so his gift was born

i left the people out of the design everything else is the same

he loved it, he likes that I reused an Altoid tin, loves the felt i found to line the inside and says the bus on tin is providing inspiration for his real bus new paint job. Even if his is the 84 Vanagon and not a 60s loaf style bus

i used a piece of yellow and orange ribbon to make trim on the can, don't think you can see it in the pictures.
