Altoid Mint Tin: Jumping Spider

I enjoyed making Altoid tin Kitty so much I wanted to making another Altoid tin critter. My oldest child loves spiders and snakes and recently celebrated a birthday. As a special gift, I made him a jumping spider habitat. The look on his face was priceless when he opened it. “Is this mine?!” he asked. This is the child who spends about 75% of his outdoor playtime either hunting for spiders or making habitats for them to come and live in. He keeps this one in the car so he can play and care for his spider on car rides.

Spider has a web, some shrubs, a rock cave and extra leaves and sticks (and an extra mushroom for sitting on perhaps).
